Family business: Why the Rangers have their eye on the sons of former pros before the MLB draft | Sports

When it comes to family businesses, baseball is certainly odd. It’s not like a father and son spent all day together by the fire at Ye Olde Baseball Shoppe, first learning, then partnering, forging careers side by side until one day the father hands the keys to the store to an adult. son.

No, “shared” experiences work more like this: if the father is part of the 1% of the 1% and has a long enough career, the son can perhaps spend a few summer days at the “office”, fucking flying bullets. and play catch. By the time most kids are old enough for the coaching pitch, dad is long retired.
