On Sept. 15, 1963, the Alou brothers, Felipe, Jesus and Matty, all appeared in the outfield during the game. This marked the first and only time an MLB outfield has been played completely by brothers.

A few brothers have won the World Series side by side, including Mort and Walker Cooper. They won the World Series with the Cardinals, not once, but twice. They are the only brothers to have ever won multiple World Series titles with the same team, according to the MLB. The brothers first captured the championship in 1942 and then for a second time in 1944. 

Brothers Dizzy and Paul Dean also found luck with the Cardinals, winning the World Series together in 1934.
