  • 10 Best Father/Son Combos

    Who are the 10 Best Father/Son Combos? I haven't thought my list out yet, but I'm pretty sure it starts with Bobby and Barry. I'm sure the Griffeys will make an appearance, and probably multiple sets of Boones, some Alous and some Alomars.

    Here are some of the best baseball "families" off the top of my head in no particular order:

    Bonds
    Griffey
    Alou
    Bell
    Boone
    DiMaggio
    Delehanty
    Niekro

          For the dubious offspring crowd, perhaps.

          Or Hank and Steve Greenberg?

          Dolph and Doug Camilli?

          George and Dave Sisler (you could throw Dick in their too, but Dick wasn't too bad, really)?

            Cecil and Prince Fielder are looking like they will be a great father-son duo.

                If you give me 3:1 odds I'll take that bet!

                  How can we forget about Yogi/Dale Berra

                  Yogi: On why NY lost the 1960 series to Pittsburgh:

                  " We made too many wrong mistakes"

                  Dale: On being compared to his father:

                  "Our similarities are different."

                        not sure how this would fit, but didn't cepeda's father play in the negro leagues.

                          Luis Tiant Sr. and Jr. did, right?

                            The top pair has to be the Bonds pair.

                            Between them, they carry a .550 Slg, and 1040 HR's!!!

                            That beats out the Griffey's by around .050 points Slg, and 350 HR's (352 to be exact).


                            As with both pairs, their father's were very good players during their time, and their son's were raised in the baseball world, so they had a headstart on everyone else. But people still didn't think they could outshine their fathers, but both of them did - by a wide margin. Both have been called the best in baseball at one point in time, and are among the greatest sluggers in baseball history.

                              Hey, don't the Boone's have another son in the Minor's still? I thought I heard that a while ago, but I don't know if it's true or not.
