Luis Rojas was recently named the manager of the New York Mets, filling the vacancy created when Carlos Beltran stepped down as manager for his involvement in the Houston Astros sign-stealing scandal.
Rojas is the son of Felipe Alou, a long-time major-league player and manager. They become only the sixth set of father-son combos to manage at the major-league level. The others include Buddy and David Bell, Bob and Aaron Boone, Bob and Joel Skinner, George and Dick Sisler, and Connie and Earle Mack.
Rojas is also the brother of Moises Alou, who was a major-leaguer from 1990-2008.
Rojas’s uncles include Matty Alou and Jesus Alou, who also played during the same timeframe as brother Felipe.
