2020 Topps Now -- Seager Brothers Each Hit Homers in 1st Career Matchup - #119

Last night the Seager brothers trotted out on the field to play each other for the first time in their careers, and their play didn't disappoint. They both had multiple hits, including home runs that no doubt impressed the other. Unfortunately for them, only one team can win the game. Per Alden Gonzalez at ESPN:
"You're still trying to win a game," (Corey) Seager said Monday, "but when you got around him, it was hard not to see your brother in the opponent."
"He only got three [hits] -- that's his fault," said Corey, who was 2-for-4 with a walk. "But we'll take the win."
I love how siblings always tend to jaw at each other, but you know they both enjoyed the day.
"It's really special for me, being the older brother, to get to work out and train in the offseasons with both my brothers," Kyle said. "That's something that I really, really enjoyed. Me being a little bit older, I never got to go to school with them. I never played with them or anything like that. That time that we were spending the winters together, where we would work out every day, where we'd hit in the cage every day, when we had those times, those were really special to me."
To commemorate the day Topps has issued a 2020 Topps Now card. See it out above and below. Go here to check it out and order. To the right is a look at the back of the card. Below is what's written:
Leading up to Monday's game betweet the Mariners and Dodgers, Seattle third baseman Kyle Seager was quoted as saying "I'm pretty excited. Get to see what all the hype is about." The 32-year-old was of course commenting on matching up against his 26-year-old brother Corey, shortstop for the Dodgers. Both Seager boys made some noise in what would be an 11-9 victory for Los Angeles. The younger Seager homered in the second inning and the elder followed up with a longball of his own in the third.
