B.J. and Justin Upton

B.J., dubbed "Bossman Junior," followed in the footsteps of his father, Manny (the original "Bossman" in his playing days), going as the second overall selection to the Tampa Bay Rays in the 2002 draft. Justin joined the family business a few years later, going as the No. 1 pick in the 2005 draft, making the Upton's the highest drafted siblings of all time. The Arizona Diamondbacks traded Justin to the Braves on Jan. 24, 2013, where B.J. signed a free agent contract earlier this offseason, bringing the brothers together for the first time in the big leagues.
