Nick Gordon, son on former reliever Tom Gordon, was the fifth selection in the 2014 MLB first-year player draft.

Major League Baseball is a sport with a long history of sons following in their fathers' footsteps. It is also a sport where brothers play against each other and grandsons try to live up to the example their grandfathers set.

The 2014 MLB first-year player draft is no different.

There are sons who rank among the top prospects in the nation and others who are fringe players hoping to get a chance to prove they belong. This year’s draft also features a player whose connection to the game traces back to his grandfather's cousin. And then, of course, there are the brothers of current MLB players.

Let’s take a look at some of the "legacy" players in the MLB draft this season and check out their chances of reaching the big leagues by the time their playing days are through. The percentages are based on overall perception and ability for skills to translate into professional success. 

As the MLB first-year player draft unfolds, this slideshow will be updated with information on the players featured and on other draftees with past connections to the game.
