A KV Major Leaguer?

I'm not aware if KV has sent one of its sons to the major leagues. Vinnie Adimondo almost made it. Dr. Serafin would always talk to me about Frank Malzone as if he was a KVer. Hank Greenberg spent some time in Greenwich Village before he moved to the Bronx. Joe Torre lived in Bushwick for a while. Lou Gehrig hailed from Washington Heights. I learned that Al Schacht went to PS 42, not the one on Hester Street however, but in the Bronx. Now with the Mets signing J.J. Putz? Well a lot of guys were called putzes in Tanahey and Coleman Oval. Can't wait to see those headlines
