Relatively Speaking

May 23, 2002

This year's draft has its usual assortment of players with relatives--mostly fathers--who made a mark in the big leagues. None should make more of an impact than Prince Fielder and John Mayberry Jr., both possible first-round picks and first basemen like their fathers, Cecil Fielder and John Mayberry.
