Best Brother Duos in Sports History
Wilson and William Contreras will make history during the MLB All-Star Game. Wilson will be the starting catcher for the National League, while William will now be the starting Designated Hitter for the NL team. They will be the first brothers to both play in the same all-star game since the Boone brothers did so in 2003. Being an All-Star is already an accomplishment, doing it with your brother on the same team makes it that much cooler. With that being said, here’s a list of the best brotherhoods in sports history:
Peyton and Eli Manning:
Peyton was a four-time MVP who led both the Indianapolis Colts and the Denver Broncos to Super Bowl wins. Eli, the younger brother, did not disappoint in comparison to his older brother Peyton. Eli never missed a game due to injury which allowed him to start in 210 consecutive games, ranks third all-time for consecutive starts in the NFL. Eli also led his New York Giants to two Super Bowls, one of those preventing Tom Brady from a perfect season. Eli won Super Bowl MVP in both of those games.
Pau and Marc Gasol:
Pau had an immediate impact in the NBA winning Rookie of the Year in 2002. He continued his impact on the court as he was a part of the 2009 and 2010 NBA championship teams out of Los Angeles. He was also a 6-time All-Star. Marc was also rather successful during his NBA tenure. The three-time All-Star and 2015 All-NBA First Team member also won an NBA Finals Championship in 2019.
Bengie, Jose and Yadier Molina:
We have our only trio on this list with the Molina brothers. Bengie, the eldest of the three, played 12 years in the MLB for the Rangers, Blue Jays, Giants and Rangers. He won two Gold Gloves and a World Series Championship with the Angels. Jose played for 14 years for the Cubs, Angels, Yankees, Blue Jays, and Rays. Jose was also on the 2002 World Series team with his brother Bengie. Jose added another ring in 2009 with the Yankees. Yadier is by far the most decorated of the three. Yadier has won nine gold gloves. 4 platinum gloves, one silver slugger award, and has also been named an All-Star 10 times. Yadier is also a two-time World Series Champion. All of these accomplishments come while playing for the St. Louis Cardinals.
