He won a World Series with the Marlins. 15 years later, his son made his MLB debut

Ivan "Pudge" Rodriguez's Hall of Fame career resulted in 14 All-Star nominations, the 1999 American League MVP award and a 2003 World Series championship with the then-Florida Marlins.

The family legacy in Major League Baseball is continuing.

Rodriguez's son, 25-year-old pitcher Dereck Rodriguez, made his Major League debut for the San Francisco Giants on Tuesday against the Colorado Rockies when he came to the mound in relief of injured starter Jeff Samardzija.

It was a rocky debut. Over the course of 3 1/3 innings, Rodriguez gave up four runs (one earned) on five hits while striking out four.
