    Mel and Todd Stottlemyre are another pair that come to mind.

    Like the Bells. Buddy Bell's sons David and Mike both made the big leagues (Mike didn't last long, but David isn't bad). And of course, Grandpa Gus had a decent career.

    Yeah, Matt Boone, but I'm not sure if he's still playing. I don't think he got much above single A.

    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.

    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."

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

    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)?
    Hal and Hal Trosky Jr?

    Pete and Pete Rose Jr?

    Yogi and Dale Berra?

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