[HOMEGROWN WATCH] Fourteen homegrown players made their MLS debuts in 2011. Five of them, including 16-year-old Jack McBean, who scored for Los Angeles on the final day of the regular season, and 16-year-old Diego Fagundez of New England, scored. Of the 41 homegrown players currently under contract to MLS clubs, 20 played at least one game in 2011. Of the 10 who played 10 or more games, only three are U.S. citizens. Only three homegrown players started 20 or more games, and they all played for D.C. United: Andy Najar, Bill Hamid and Ethan White.
