Bristol White Sox Has Five Players Whose Fathers Played in the Majors

The Bristol White Sox minor league team has five players whose names would be very familiar to Major League Baseball fans. The five share a sort of bond among themselves because of their baseball bloodlines. They include: Patrick Palmeiro, son of Rafael Palmeiro; Nick Parent, son of Mark Parent; Cody Yount, son of Larry Yount and nephew of Robin Yount; Toby Thomas, son of Larry Thomas; and Audry Santana, son of Rafael Santana.

The current manager of Bristol, Mike Gellinger, also managed Toby’s father (Larry) in 1991, when they were with the Utica Blue Sox in the New York-Penn League.

The attached article in TriCities.com is about these five sons of former Major Leaguers:
