These Infographics Break Down Where Pro Athletes Come From

The NHL, the MLB, and the NBA might be American national sports leagues, but they get their talent from all over the world. Now, thanks to the Sportchart blog, we've got some cool visuals to show exactly where these athletes are from. Designer Tomer Cohen used stats from NHL.com, Basketball-Reference.com, and ESPN.com to assemble these graphics.

While the charts visualize some information that's not surprising -- for example, most NBA players are from America -- there's a lot of interesting tidbits as well. There are some hockey players who were born in warm weather climates -- Robyn Regehr of the L.A. Kings, who is from Brazil, and Craig Adams of the Penguins, who is from Brunei. And there are in fact more current major leaguers from Texas than there are from the Dominican Republican.
