Do Major League umpires count? John Kibler graduated from my high school. He was the 1st base umpire in game 6 of the 1986 World Series (Buckner play) and had a 25 year career in the majors.

I actually had the opportunity to go to the same high school as Kevin Garnett, I chose not to.

Not because of him, but because that was pretty much all they would say during the tour.

Carry on...

The closest I am is my best friends brother who plays semi pro in Indiana.

Other than that, Craig Biggio grew up in Smithtown and went to high school at Kings Park, I'm kind of close to KPHS...
