Do you think you're a mother or father of your secondary school baseball player who's dreams and aspirations of visiting a D1 college or setting up a term for himself in the MLB? Unfortunately for the kid, You happen to be holding him back more than you understand.

A huge 46 players that have a father or close relative who played in the MLB were drafted in 2015 [1]. Some of the more well-known these include Conor Biggio, the son of Hall of Famer Craig Biggio and Mariano Rivera Jr., the son of all-time saves leader Mariano Rivera.

Look at this: players with MLB close relatives are 3 times prone to get drafted, compared to those players without MLB relatives [2]. So why do you imagine clubs draft this type of player? Because he checks the following boxes:

1) Raw talent / athletic genes,
