The Statue of Liberty isn't France's only gift to the U.S. Here is a list of the major leaguers born on French soil:
?Joe Woerlin, 10/9/1864, somewhere in France. The Washington shortstop was a .333 lifetime hitter—he went 1 for 3 in his only major league game, in 1895.
?Ed Gagnier, 4/16/1883, in Paris. An infielder in the Federal League in 1914-15, he had a career batting average of .195. In '15 he was traded, along with Ed Lafitte, from Brooklyn to Buffalo for Fred Smith.
?Duke Markell, 8/17/1923, in Paris. Also known as Harry Duquesne Makowsky, the righthander pitched in five games for the 1951 St. Louis Browns.
? Bruce Bochy, 4/16/1955, in Landes de Boussac. The Padres backup catcher is hitting .217. A former Astro and Met, Bochy's claim to fame is his size 7� head, which may be the largest in the majors. His parents lived in France because his father was in the armed forces.
? Charlie Lea, 12/25/1956, in Orleans. Son of a U.S. serviceman, the Expo righthander is spending his second year on the disabled list after winning 43 games from 1982 to '84.
?Steve Jeltz, 5/28/1959, in Paris. The Phillies shortstop, now batting .245, was born while his father was stationed in France with the U.S. Army.
(If you're wondering, Napoleon Lajoie was born in Woonsocket, R.I.)
