Eric Young Sr. and Eric Young Jr. share some love at Coors Field

And the cat’s in the cradle and the silver spoon, Little Boy Blue and the man in the Moon...

The Eric Youngs, otherwise known as Diamondbacks first base coach Eric Young Sr. and his son, Rockies outfielder Eric Young Jr., might be on rival teams, but that doesn't mean they aren't rooting for each other.

In fact, Daddy Eric openly admits that when his son is up to bat, he’s hoping for a hit. If anyone in Arizona has a problem with that, they'll just have to deal with it.

And even though the two Youngs sit in different dugouts once the first pitch is thrown, they always find time for a pregame hug.
