Did you know that George Herman "Babe" Ruth's great nephew plays Major League Baseball? The player I refer to is none other that Phillie TJ Bohn. Yep, the young phenom slugging outfielder who has been passed from organization to organization and was recently given free agent status is of Babe Ruth's bloodline...okay, not really. Sorry TJ Bohn, but you suck, and the only thing you've got going for you is you pseudo-porn name. Some current Phillies do have MLB lineage though, with Jayson Werth being a shining example.
Werth's stepfather was Dennis Werth, who played 1st base, outfield, and catcher for the New York Yankees and Royals in the early 80's. Jayson has two Dicks that played professionally in his family too, grandfather John Richard "Dick" Schofield and uncle Richard Craig "Dick" Schofield. The older Dick is a veteran of 19 seasons (1953-1971), playing with the Cardinals, Pirates, Giants, Yankees, Dodgers, Red Sox, and Brewers. It's amazing he hung around for all those years, because he's a lifetime .227 batter with only 699 hits to his credit (that's only 36.8 hits per season). Old Dick was predominantly a shortstop, but dabbled around the rest of the diamond as well. The younger Dick followed in his father's footsteps as low impact middle infielder that stuck around for over a decade. In 14 seasons, young Dick batted .230 while playing for the Angels, Mets, Blue Jays, and Dodgers from 1983-1996.
Loogy Scott Eyre, has a brother named Willie Eyre that has pitched for the Twins and Rangers. He had a successful 8 seasons in the minors, but couldn't hold down a job in the bigs with his 5.23 era and 1.63 whip. Scott is a lefty, which keeps him making the big bucks, Willie is like the majority of the population (right-handed) and therefore is out of work.
Premier setup man (*circa 1996 Mariano Rivera according uber-agent Boras)Ryan Madson has an uncle, Steve Barr, who pitched for the Red Sox and Rangers back in the mid-70's. Madson had outshone his uncle after his rookie season winning 9 games and posting a 2.34 era, as his uncle Steve only won 3 games in his entire career with a 5.16 era.
Gold Gloving shortstop Jimmy Rollins' cousin Tony Tarasco had a productive MLB career spanning 8 season (1993-2002) with the Braves, Expos, Orioles, Reds, and Mets. The outfielder made a career out of being the 4th outfielder, batting .240 with a .710 OPS. Tony Tobasco, as nicknamed while in NY, is best known for attempting to catch the fly ball hit by Derek Jeter in the 1996 playoffs that youngster Jeffrey Maier interfered with and was ruled an undeserving homerun.
