The Los Angeles Angels traded minor league first baseman Matt Scioscia to the Chicago Cubs for minor league outfielder Trevor Gretzky. Neither player has played above class A ball, but the trade is noteworthy for a reason other than their accomplishments -- the players' fathers.
Scioscia is the son of Mike Scioscia, manager of the Angels, while Gretzky's father, Wayne, is the NHL's all-time leading scorer and was inducted in the the Hall of Fame after retiring in 1999.
The younger Scioscia is a career .222 hitter, while Gretzky has just 272 professional plate appearances.
#Angels trade Mike Scioscia's kid to #Cubs for Wayne Gretzky's kid. Seriously: 1B Matt Scioscia for OF Trevor Gretzky. — Bill Shaikin (@BillShaikin) March 20, 2014
