The 25 Greatest Brothers in Sports History

15. Matty, Jesus, and Felipe Alou

Sport: Baseball
Accomplishments: Matty: 2x All-Star, 1966 NL Batting Champion; Jesus: 1,216 career hits; Felipe: 3x All-Star (player), 1994 NL Manager of the Year

All three Alou brothers enjoyed solid MLB careers in the 1960s and 1970s, playing for a huge array of teams (13 different franchises between the three) and all lasting over 10 years in the big leagues. Felipe was the best of the three, hitting over 200 home runs for his career and even going on to win National League Manager of the Year in 1994. On September 15 of 1963, they made history when they became the first all-brother outfield to start a Major League game when the Giants trotted out all three Alous against the Pittsburgh Pirates.
