Sons of Manny, Clemens, Biggio, Moyer, Pettitte among potential draft picks

13 Comments

One of my favorite parts of the draft each year is all the relatives of current and former big leaguers being picked out of high school and college.

Conor Glassey of Baseball America has combed through thousands of potential draftees to put together a pretty extensive list of players with MLB bloodlines, along with some other players with famous relatives outside of baseball.

Glassey’s list includes the sons of Manny Ramirez, Craig Biggio, Roger Clemens, Jay Buhner, Bucky Dent, John Farrell, Torii Hunter, Rafael Palmeiro, Andy Pettitte, and Jamie Moyer, plus Jason Heyward’s brother, Harmon Killebrew’s grandson, Ruben Amaro Jr.’s nephew … you get the idea.

Check out the whole list and spend the rest of the day feeling old/nostalgic.
