Luke Farrell Pitches in MLB Debut With MLB Father in Attendance

Normally, you’d find John Farrell in the dugout of the Boston Red Sox as its manager.  However, on July 1, he missed the Red Sox game to attend the major-league pitching debut of his son, Luke Farrell, with the Kansas City Royals.

Luke was a 6th-round pick of the Royals in 2013 and had advanced to Triple-A this season before his call-up.

The Farrell family has other relatives in its family tree.  Luke’s grandfather, Thomas, played  in the Cleveland Indians organization in 1953-1954.

Luke also has two other brothers who pursued baseball careers.  Jeremy was infielder in the Pirates and White Sox organizations from 2008 to 2015.  He is currently a minor-league coach in the Cubs organization.  Shane was drafted by the Toronto Blue Jays in 2011, but did not sign.  He is currently a scout in the Cubs organization.
