New Sox manager John Farrell has three sons involved in the game.

Jeremy Farrell, 25, was an 8th round draft choice of the Pirates in 2008. The first baseman and third baseman hit .220 in 106 minor league games this season.

Shane Farrell, 23, was recently hired by the Cubs as an amateur scouting assistant. He pitched at Marshall.

Luke Farrell, 22, just finished his senior season at Northwestern. The righthander made 19 appearances. He has twice overcome cancerous tumors on the left side of his jaw.

Their dad's press conference will be at noon on Tuesday at Fenway Park.

Update: Jen McCaffrey of the Cape Cod Times pointed out on Twitter that Jeremy, Shane and Luke all played in the Cape Cod League during their college years.
