There are only 5-6 guys who I have never heard of, so I think the true baseball heads may know some of the names, even if not where they were born.

ETA: Only three states leader has less than 100 home runs, and one of them (Plantier) has been guessed.

No on Erstad, but I bet I could post pictures of Erstad and the actual leader and no one could tell the difference.

Vaughn is correct, and that's a weird strategy.

Frank Thomas and Gibson Correct.

Also, Michigan is the state with a tie, so there is still a Michigan point available.

I knew it was one of the two and if I guess the wrong one, someone else could have jumped in.

Pretty sure I'm out unless Schilling is the only piece of shit from Alaska and he homered at some point.

No on schilling, but that's one that I only have the vaguest memory of and may indeed be not the person I am thinking of at all. There's still a few more big names out there so I will give it some time until after lunch then maybe provide some clues.

ETA: At least five not guessed were active at least as recently as 2018.
