Yup. There are several father-son combos in baseball. If I listed them all, it would be a long post. I learned while researching this that Barry Bonds' father was Bobby Bonds...I probably should have guessed, but I didn't know.

Happy Father's Day, GM_Carson!

The Alou's are a good father/son combo too.
