15 Sons Who Outshined Their Athlete Dads

Prince Fielder

Father: Cecil Fielder
Son's Stats: .287 BA 1,178 H 260 HR 764 RBI, 4x All-Star, 2x Silver Slugger
Father's Stats: .255 BA 1,313 H 319 HR 1,008 RBI, 1x Champion 3x All-Star, 2x Silver Slugger

Both guys are monster hitters, both have hit 50 home runs in a season and both have worn a Detroit Tigers uniform. You think these two are related? Prince is an all-around better player than his pops. He has a decent glove at first base and can hit for power as well as average. Cecil was basically just a power hitter, but a very clutch one. The OG Fielder is one of the best hitters in Tiger history. Detroit is in their first World Series since 2006 so maybe Prince can match his father in rings as well. You mad, Yankees fans?
