Delino Deshields was born in 1969 -- he made his big-league debut in 1990, and now his son has been drafted.
Delino Deshields Jr. was taken No. 8 overall by the Houston Astros.
The elder Deshields played parts of 13 seasons for the Expos (ask your parents, kids), Dodgers, Cardinals, Orioles and Cubs. Like his dad, the younger Deshileds can flat fly. He was also a top running back in the state of Georgia.
Now I know how my dad felt when Ken Griffey Jr. was drafted.
