Bichette Brothers Play for Brazil in WBC Qualifier

Dante Jr. and Bo Bichette had never played baseball together in competition, until they recently appeared for Brazil in the World Baseball Classic Qualifier round in Brooklyn, NY.  They were eligible to represent Brazil because their mother is a native of the country.

They are the sons of Dante Bichette, Sr., who logged fourteen seasons in the major-leagues with 355 HRs, 1078 RBIs, and a .299 batting average.  He was a four-time All-Star and runner-up for National League MVP in 1995.

Dante Jr. was a first-round pick of the New York Yankees in 2011, and he played at Double-A Trenton in 2016, where he posted 9 HRs and 49 RBIs to go along with a .243 average.

Bo was a second-round pick of the Toronto Blue Jays this year.  He played rookie ball in the Gulf Coast League, where he excelled with 4 HRs, 36 RBIs and an amazing .427 batting average in 22 games.
