Luke Leftwich aims to join elite group

Pitcher Luke Leftwich is currently playing at the Triple-A level in the Phillies organization. He was a seventh-round pick of the Phillies in 2015.

If Leftwich reaches the majors, his family will become part of history as one of only six three-generation families to play in the majors. Leftwich’s father, Phil, played three seasons with the California Angels in the 1990s. His grandfather is Tom Timmermann, who pitched six major-league seasons from 1969 to 1974.

The other three-generation families include the Bell, Boone, Coleman, Hairston, and Schofield/Werth families.
