And America is paying attention.
With all due respect to Jim Thorpe, Louis Sockalexis, Charles Bender and other Native baseball greats, Jacoby Ellsbury, 24, and Joba Chamberlain, 22, are in a league of their own.
Ellsbury, a quick-footed outfielder who floats around bases, plays for the Boston Red Sox and Chamberlain, a pitcher with a flamethrower for a right arm, tosses out of the New York Yankees bullpen.
The Boston Globe and Herald are having a feeding frenzy with Ellsbury while in New York, The Times, Post, Daily News and Newsday can't get enough of Chamberlain. TV networks are just as giddy about these two.
