I have an idea and I wonder what various commenters think about it.

I was looking on line for a small town in Washington state and found out that one of its most famous citizens is a professional baseball player. But he didn’t play for the Seattle Mariners. He played for the Boston Red Sox.

How wasteful, I thought, when he could have played locally. So here’s my idea:

Major league baseballs teams, indeed all professional sports teams, should hire locally. That would save on transportation costs and would also create jobs locally.

Am I wrong? As Bryan likes to say, show your work.
