High School Team Features Three Sons of Big-Leaguers

Northwest Christian High School in Arizona has a roster that features three sons of former major leaguers.

Shortstop A. J. Graffanino is the son of former major league infielder Tony Graffanino, who played for seven teams during his 13-year career.

Brothers Austin and Tyler Worrell are the sons of Tim Worrell, who pitched for 14 season in the majors.  Their uncle, Todd Worrell was also a major league pitcher.  Austin is a relief pitcher, while Tyler plays in the outfield for the high school team.

All three high schoolers say they have aspirations to play in the major leagues like their fathers.
