Overview

"Fathers and Sons" celebrates the ties that bind by featuring the personal stories of relationships between many superstar athletes and their parents, some of whom are famous athletes as well. While the subjects have done uncommon things, their stories are as universal as the familiar scene of dad and son playing catch.
