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.
