Sons of Famous Fathers in the Amateur MLB Draft
The Denver Post has an article up about some sons of famous fathers around sports, and more particularly, in the MLB draft.
Trevor Gretzky, for example, prefers baseball over his dad’s Hall of Fame hockey legacy – and was selected in the seventh round by the Chicago Cubs. Gretzky is planning on going to San Diego State college if he doesn’t sign with the Cubs.
The Cubs also drafted Shawon Dunston Jr. in the 11th round – hearkening back to their drafting of Shawon Sr. in 1982.
The Denver Post has a couple of other father-son combos in their Draft Day 2 update, sauced below.
