German folklore tells stories of people being haunted by ghosts that look exactly like them. In American culture, we use the word doppelganger to refer to a person who could practically be your twin, well at least according to Facebook. With Father’s Day upon us, we would like to celebrate athletes who happen to have sons that are miniature versions of them. Happy Father’s Day!
