In 1973, Robin "The Kid" Yount was selected third overall by the Milwaukee Brewers in Major League Baseball's first-year player draft. Forty years later, his nephew forged an MLB Draft memory of his own. By no small margin, Uncle Robin still holds the familial bragging rights. Cody was drafted by the Chicago White Sox with the 1,113th overall pick 2013 in the 37th round of the 2013 first-year player draft.
Cody Yount was hardly the only amateur player drafted with an All-Star in the family tree. The sons of Craig Biggio, Andy Pettitte and Roger Clemens were selected on Saturday. The grandson of Hall of Famer Carl Yastrzemski was drafted out of Vanderbilt by the Baltimore Orioles in the 14th round.
The Detroit Tigers selected the son a player currently on the team, drafting Torii Hunter Jr. in the 36th round.
