Trei Cruz is currently playing baseball for Rice University, where his father also played. Jose Cruz Jr. was a first-round pick of the Seattle Mariners out of Rice in the 1995 MLB Draft. Trei’s father went on to play 12 major-league season for nine different clubs.
Trei’s grandfather, Jose Cruz Sr., was a major-leaguer for 19 seasons, primarily with the Houston Astros. Trei’s great-uncles, Tommy and Hector, also briefly play in the majors, too.
If Trei manages to get to the big leagues someday, his family will become only the fifth three-generation family to play.
