Reed Brothers Playing in White Sox and Cubs Organizations

Addison Reed, the current closer for the Chicago White Sox, was drafted on the same day in 2010 as his brother, Austin. Austin, however, is a pitcher in the Cubs organization. They are looking forward to the day when they will be facing each other in a major league game.

My book, Family Ties: A Comprehensive Collection of Facts and Trivia About Baseball’s Relatives, has a chapter on brothers as teammates and opponents, with a lot of fascinating anecdotes.

See attached article on whitesox.com about the Reeds.
