    He's local for you, but I wouldn't call him local for NYC. Jackson, NJ is closer to Citizens Bank Park in Philadelphia than to YS, not to mention how long it would take driving to YS in traffic. Would you call Poughkeepsie local for NYC? According to Google Maps, Poughkeepsie is closer to YS than Jackson is, not to mention Poughkeepsie isn't anywhere near any teams not in New York.

    Cool!

    He's relatively local to me as well. I live about 20 minutes from Jackson NJ.
