Ogden Raptors’ Players Carry On The Family Tradition

The Ogden Raptors of the Pioneer League have a family affair going on this season. Five sons of former Major Leaguers occupy roster spots for the Los Angeles Dodgers farm team. The manager of the Raptors, Damon Berryhill, feels a bit strange managing these players, since he played with or against their fathers in the big leagues.

The young prospects include: Jordan Hershiser, son of Orel Hershiser; Dillon Moyer, son of Jamie Moyer; Alex Santana, son of Rafael Santana; Zach Babitt, son of Shooty Babitt; and Jesmuel Valentin, son of Jose Valentin.
