Former MLB star Andruw Jones should be an MLB Hall of Famer, but somehow, he is not. Now his son Druw has a chance to put their last name in the Hall of Fame.
At the young age of 18, Druw is currently a senior in high school. He is ranked the No. 1 MLB Draft eligible prospect for 2022 by MLB Network and the No. 4 overall player in his class by Perfect Game.
Jones plays centerfield just like his father. And not only can he field like his 10-time Gold Glove Award-winning dad, he can mash just like him too.
At 6-foot-4, 190 pounds, Jones bats (and throws) righty and is a career .435-10-177 hitter in 227 Perfect Game Tournament games. Needless to say, he has what it takes to reach the next level and is well on his way.
Although Jones is committed to play his college baseball at Vanderbilt, it is expected that he will be a first round pick and will go straight to the league. He has the MLB blood and is not just a name— he is carving his own path.
Jones began his final high school season on February 11 and went yard in the season opener. On Friday, he had himself a night.
In his first at-bat, Jones singled, stole second and then scored. In his second at-bat, he took a hanging breaking ball about 400 feet. He followed it up in his third at-bat and crushed his second dinger of the game.
They were both BOMBS. Take a look:

He is the No. 1 ranked prospect in the 2022 Draft

At the end of the day, Jones’ draft stock is all-but sured-up. He is going in the first round. However, if he keeps raking like he has thus far in 2022, he could make a legitimate case to go No. 1 overall.
The apple doesn’t fall far from the tree.
