Brothers Yuli and Lourdes Jr. Gurriel played against each other on Father’s Day weekend in Houston. It wasn’t the first time the brothers opposed each other, but it was special this time because their father, Lourdes Gurriel Sr. attended the games between the Houston Astros and Toronto Blue Jays.
Yuli is in his his fourth major-league season with the Astros, while Lourdes Jr. is in his second with the Blue Jays. The brothers defected from Cuba in 2016 in order to be able to play pro baseball in the United States.
Lourdes Gurriel Sr. is one of the all-time best players from Cuba, having garnered over 20 medals for Team Cuba in international play.
