Father and Son Strikeout Kings

Last Fall, Roger Clemens shared this fun record that he and his son Kody hold.  It's really not too shocking that Kody Clemens has such a low career strikeouts total considering the fact that he's not a pitcher.  He was, however, brought in to pitch on a few occasions in his career.  His most recent strikeout, and the only one to come in a Phillies uniform, took place on May 1st, 2023 in a game against the Los Angeles Dodgers.  The Phillies were losing 13-4 when Kody was brought over from first base to pitch in the bottom of the 8th.  He struck out Michael Busch for the second out of the inning to record his second career strikeout and 4,674 of the father/son record.
