Bichette Jr. Expects to Live Up to his Father’s Name

Dante Bichette Jr. is in his fourth professional season after being drafted by the New York Yankees in the first round as a supplemental pick (51st overall) in 2011. His father, Dante Sr., had a 14-year career in the Major Leagues, which included the 1995 season when he led the National League in home runs and RBI. Thus, Dante Jr. feels a lot of pressure because of his father’s career. He was coached by his father growing up and attributes all he knows about the game to him.

While Dante Jr. has struggled in the low minors, he seems to have turned the corner this season, being recently promoted to Double-A Trenton in the Yankees farm system.
