These Griffeys Don’t Play Baseball

Trey and Taryn Griffey are the children of Ken Griffey Jr., but they didn’t exactly follow in their father and grandfather’s steps. The brother and sister are currently students at the University of Arizona, where Trey is playing football and Taryn is a member of the women’s basketball team.

Griffey Jr. and his father Ken Sr. are one of the most famous father-son duos in major league baseball history. Both of them were all-star caliber players, with Ken Jr. among the all-time home run leaders.

Trey was the batboy for Team USA in the 2006 World Baseball Classic, when his father was on the team, but chose football over baseball.
