In a recent New York Times “Answers to Questions About New York” article, a reader asked which NYC high school sent the most players to play baseball in the Major Leagues.

The answer is Lafayette High School at 263o Benson Avenue. The school can boast an all-time NYC record of 13 student-athletes. Just to name a few, Sandy Koufax and John Franco are among the superstar graduates, according to Marge Feinberg, a spokeswoman for the Education Department.

How’s that for alumni?

As for the remaining 11 alums, they are yet to be named. Perhaps a sports fan reading this can tell us.
