Ken Griffey Jr. and Ken Griffey Sr.
One of the most famous father-son duos in sports didn’t just take up the same profession—they were teammates for a bit of time too. The elder Griffey won two World Series titles with the Cincinnati Reds during the 1970s, while the younger Griffey became an MLB superstar with the Seattle Mariners after being a No. 1 draft pick. Towards the end of Griffey Sr.’s career, he joined the Mariners and played alongside his son.
By playing together, the duo set a number of milestones that will be hard to repeat: they were the first father-son pair to be on the bases together at the same time, and the first to hit back-to-back home runs in a game. The younger Griffey had a fantastic baseball career and was elected to the National Baseball Hall of Fame in the 2016 class after following his father into profressional baseball.
