Father and Son Same Sport Athletes

Updated on May 25, 2010

Ken Griffey Sr. & Ken Griffey Jr.

There have been a lot of father-son combinations in Major League Baseball but only Ken Griffey Sr. and Ken Jr. played in the major leagues at the same time, and on the same team with the Cincinnati Reds. This duo is also the only father son team to hit back to back home runs in a game.

Bobby Hull & Brett Hull

The "Golden Jet" and the "Golden Brett" are ahead of the pack when it comes to great father-son duos. Bobby and Brett both have over 600 goals, have won an MVP award, and have both won a Stanley Cup. Eventually, they will both be in the Hall of Fame too. When you combine Bobby's statistics with son Brett's statistics, you get the best father and son duo in sports.

Bobby Bonds & Barry Bonds

Bobby, played for the Giants from 1968 until 1974, set standards of performance for his eldest son Barry. In 1990, Barry joined his father in the 30 home runs-30 stolen bases club. Barry's accomplishments took off from there. In addition to winning numerous Gold Glove Awards and MVP honors, Barry currently holds baseball's home run single-season record.

Ralph Earnhardt, Dale Earnhardt and Dale Earnhardt Jr.

The Earnhardts, Ralph, Dale and Dale Jr., are the first family of NASCAR. Ralph Earnhardt was a NASCAR pioneer and considered a master car builder by racing historians. His son, Dale Earnhardt ("The Intimidator"), was one the most beloved and successful drivers in NASCAR history. While Dale Jr. won the 2004 Daytona 500.

Archie Manning, Peyton Manning and Eli Manning

This is the family that proves that athletic ability can be passed from one generation to the next. All three were finalists for the Heisman Trophy, and were first round draft picks.  Archie was picked No. 2 overall by the New Orleans Saints in 1971. He played for 14 years in the NFL and was the NFC MVP in 1978. Peyton was selected first overall by the Indianapolis Colts in the 1998 draft. In 2004, he passed for an astounding 4,557 yards and a record 49 touchdowns. In 2007 he was named Super Bowl XLI MVP. Peyton’s younger brother Eli was drafted first overall by the San Diego Chargers, who traded him to the New York Giants in a draft-day trade. In 2008 he was named Super Bowl XLII MVP.
