The Amaro Family Baseball Legacy Continues

Andrew Amaro is currently playing baseball at the University of Maryland. He was drafted out of high school by the Philadelphia Phillies as a 40th round pick in 2009, but chose to attend college first. He comes from a long line of family members who were involved in professional baseball.

His grandfather, Ruben Amaro Sr., played in the Majors for eleven seasons during 1958-1969. Andrew’s father David played college ball at Duke and then later in the Cubs organization. Andrew’s uncle, Ruben Jr., is currently the General Manager for the Philadelphia Phillies, and also a former Major Leaguer. Andrew’s brother, Robert, plays collegiately at the University of Virginia.

Andrew would love nothing more than to be a third-generation Amaro to play in the big leagues.
