We've found a real, live Florida Gulf Coast alum -- and it's Chris Sale

San Diego State has produced dozens of big leaguers, including Tony Gwynn (who's now SDSU's head baseball coach), Mark Grace, Stephen Strasburg and Addison Reed. Florida Gulf Coast has produced just two: Cubs right-hander Casey Coleman and Reed's White Sox teammate, Chris Sale.

That should up the stakes just a little bit in Chicago's bracket pool when the Aztecs tip off against the Cinderella-story Eagles on Sunday night.
