Nearly 100 pairs of brothers in MLB who were also teammates, including some sets of twins

The MLB is full of family ties.

There have been over 400 sets of brothers who played in MLB. Of these 400 plus combinations, there have been almost 100 sets of brothers who were also teammates. 

Many brothers who have had the same name on the front and back of their jerseys have accomplished incredible feats together.

On Sept. 15, 1963, the Alou brothers, Felipe, Jesus and Matty, all appeared in the outfield during the game. This marked the first and only time an MLB outfield has been played completely by brothers.

A few brothers have won the World Series side by side, including Mort and Walker Cooper. They won the World Series with the Cardinals, not once, but twice. They are the only brothers to have ever won multiple World Series titles with the same team, according to the MLB. The brothers first captured the championship in 1942 and then for a second time in 1944. 

Brothers Dizzy and Paul Dean also found luck with the Cardinals, winning the World Series together in 1934.
