Ranking the Top 10 Father-Son Duos in MLB History
Bill Chan/Associated Press

There is something to be said for having good genes when it comes to being a baseball player, as there has been no shortage of father-son combinations in Major League Baseball.

More times than not, one member of the family is far more productive than the other, but there have been a handful of cases where both father and son were big league stars.

Here on Father's Day, we take a look back at the 10 greatest father-son duos in MLB history. We also provide a lengthy roster of honorable mentions and a peek at who could be challenging for a spot on this list in the years to come.

We ranked the duos on the balanced production of both father and son, so while guys like Tony Gwynn, George Sisler, Yogi Berra and Tony Perez had Hall of Fame careers and sons who reached the majors, they don't crack the list with the sons falling well short of the fathers' numbers.
