    How about we compose a list of major leaguers who are related to each other. No siblings and father sons unless the name is different. I figure everyone knows about the Alous,Boones,Deans etc...

    Cecil Upshaw and George Stone cousins
    mrs Babe Ruth and Johnny Mize cousins
    Boog Powell and Carl Taylor half brothers
    Storm Davis and Glenn Davis step brothers
    Milt Stock and Eddie Stanky father and son in law
    Lou Boudreau and Denny Mcclain father and son in law
    Bert Campaneris and Jose Cardenal cousins
    ?Can't remember's widow( I think he was from KS and had a major league son too) married Burleigh Grimes.
    Tommy Helms and Wes Helms are uncle and nephew


    these are just a few off the top of my head... want to add some others?

              I've never heard of Fermin Guerra> I actually remember George Lazerique. Born in 47 and pitched for the A's and Brewers briefly.

              I bet there's more...

                    A lot of people say this honor validates my career, but I didn't work hard for validation. I didn't play the game right because I saw a reward at the end of the tunnel. I played it right because that's what you're supposed to do, play it right and with respect. If this validates anything, it's that learning how to bunt and hit and run and turning two is more important than knowing where to find the little red light at the dug out camera. - Ryne Sandberg

                              sherry was calvin griffith's brother

                              calvin's parents had 7 kids - clark and anne griffith (who were unable to have kids) took in calvin and thelma robertson when their father became ill - they were never formally adopted but they did take the griffith name and lived with clark -- within two years of taking in calvin and thelma the robertson father (anne's brother) died and clark brought the rest of the family from montreal and bought them a house not far from his in a washington d.c. suburb - calvin and thelma continued to live with clark - eventually the whole family worked for the senators - the senators were never a rich club but it did provide clark and his extended family with a more than comfortable lifestyle

                              joe haynes married thelma
                              joe cronin married another sister, mildred
