The Baseball Family Tree

There are more than three-hundred fifty sets of brothers who have made it to the Major Leagues. Twenty-five members of the National Baseball Hall of Fame had a brother who also played in the big leagues. Other interesting combos include World Series Appearances, All-Star games, and pitcher vs catcher match-ups.

Add another hundred plus father-and-son combinations, plus a few grandfathers with grandsons, some family teammates, and even a few twins, and you can see that leaves from a tree don’t often fall far from the trunk in the Baseball Almanac Family Tree.
