Okay, I'm old.
That fact hit home tonight watching Casey Coleman pitch for the Cubs. Casey's dad, Joe, pitched for the Senators 1965-70, and I saw him throw many times. Joe's not much older than I am - he was Washington's first ever first round pick in the 1965 draft out of high school, the third player taken overall. Later he was involved in the infamous Denny McLain trade, and went on to have a pair of 20-win seasons with the Tigers.
Casey's grandfather, also named Joe, pitched for many years in the majors, mostly with the Philadelphia A's, so it's a third generation thing as well. Joe Sr. finished up with the Tigers, where Jr. also pitched, and Casey pitched for the Cubs where Jr. also pitched. Connections all around.
