If you mean born in N.J., I would have to say the best player is Derek Jeter. Al Leiter was also born in N.J.

Berra was born in St. Louis, Rizzuto in Brooklyn NY. There are plenty of great baseball players that have lived in N.J., but I think he was after players that were born here.

I found a listing from Baseball Almanac of baseball players born in NJ. I recognized a few names, but noone else that would really stand out.
