St. Louis Cardinals infielder Greg Garcia is a third-generation baseball player.

His grandfather was Dave Garcia, who recently died after parts of eight decades in baseball as a player, coach, manager, and special assistant. His father, Dave Garcia Jr., played two minor-league seasons in the New York Yankees organization. Greg’s brother, Drew, played eight seasons in the minors, reaching the Triple-A level with the White Sox and Rockies.

In the early 2000s when Greg’s grandfather was a bench coach for the Rockies, Greg served as the team’s batboy.
