Chris Mondesi played baseball for Grand Central Campus High School in Brooklyn this past season. He has a lot of family pressure to live with, since his uncle Raul Mondesi was a major leaguer for thirteen seasons during 1993 and 2005. And currently, he also has two cousins in professional baseball, Raul Adalberto Mondesi (Royals organization) and Raul Mondesi Jr. (Rays organization).
Despite the motivation he receives by following in his family’s footsteps, Chris has a ways to go before he will get his opportunity in professional baseball–he just completed his freshman year in high school.
