Muhammad Ali knocked them out in the ring. Could his son could be knocking them out of MLB ballparks soon? Ali was in South Florida on Wednesday to help the Miami Marlins open their new ballpark, and the team is interested in his son, Asaad Amin Ali.
Marlins owner Jeffrey Loria spent months trying to convince Ali to make an appearance near the site of his 1964 knockout of Sonny Liston. Ali visited with players before the game in the clubhouse.
Asaad Amin, adopted in 1992 by Ali and his wife, Lonnie, was drafted by the Angels in the 40th round in 2009. That was after he led his high school team to a division title in Niles, Michigan. He passed on signing with the Angels to give college a shot at Louisville where he played catcher.
Now the Marlins are interested.
"His son is a player," Loria told Fox Sports Florida. "We're actually going to sit and talk with his son ... He wants to know more about going about his business as a possible professional."
