The Next Wave of Players' Sons Who Will Be Impact Names in MLB

Major League Baseball has been blessed over the years with a bevy of father/son combinations that have starred in back-to-back generations.

Ken Griffey and Ken Griffey Jr., Felipe and Moises Alou and Bobby and Barry Bonds are just some of the paternal pairings that have made an impact on baseball through the years.

And now, other sons of former major league stars threaten to add their names to the father/son list.

Last Friday, Josh Pettitte, son of current New York Yankees pitcher Andy Pettitte, fired a no-hitter for Deer Park (TX) High School, striking out 10 batters and walking just one.

Pettitte has committed to Baylor University and could very well have a decision to make when the MLB draft rolls around in June.

Here are eight sons who could soon become great players in their own right.
