There is something about “Take me out to the ball game” that has lured people to baseball games as a way to create history and memories. It is no surprise, then, that family and cultural ties have been part of baseball at the professional level for eons. That has led to some interesting combinations on and off the diamond.
Fathers and sons, brothers, in-laws, cousins, uncles and nephews…these are some of the “brother” combinations that have played major league baseball or been involved in some capacity since the first league was formed. Some have played together, others generations apart. Some enjoyed long Hall of Fame careers, others made one appearance.
Regardless of what teams they played for or when they played they have created interesting moments, set numerous records, and left unique memories. Their stories, some heartwarming, some bizarre, all intriguing, are the essence of this book.
Brothers in Baseball is a classic collection of anecdotes that bring to life forgotten side notes of the game that has united so many people across the world. It is as interesting as the history of baseball itself.
