Jake Boone was drafted in the 38th round of the 2017 MLB Draft by the Washington Nationals. If he were to eventually reach the major-league level, he would be the first player of a four-generation family to do so.
Jake is the son of Bret Boone, the grandson of Bob Boone and great-grandson of Ray Boone. Bret, Bob, and Ray were the first three-generation family in the majors, a very exclusive club that includes only three other such families, the Bells, Hairstons, and Colemans.
Bret was a three-time All-Star during his 14-year MLB career. Bob, was a four-time All-Star during his 19 years, while Ray made the All-Star team twice during his 13-year career. Jake’s uncle, Aaron was an infielder in the majors from 1997 to 2009.
