The sports world, along with just about every imaginable social media outlet known to man, was abuzz early in the 2011 season when Coco Crisp finally removed his trademark braids and revealed ‘baseball’s baddest afro' since Oscar Gamble's ruled the world 35 years earlier.

Seriously. It was epic enough to be placed in that elite class.

The only problem with it was Crisp didn't keep the look for nearly as long as many of us had hoped he would, but still, during its short stay it was more than apparent he had been blessed with hair very few before and after could claim to match. Or, as our own Kevin Kaduk put it, locks that were a lock for the Fashion Ump Hall of Fame.

With just that little peak to amuse us, it almost goes without saying that Crisp's big hair is a look we've longed to see again, and thanks to a photo posted by the Oakland A's outfield on Twitter on Friday, we now have. Only this time it was revealed that Coco's great hair isn't just his own, but is in fact hereditary, and has been successfully been passed down one generation.

That's right, as you can see in said photo (above), Crisp’s young son, Caden, who's also showing off some of his American Idol worthy — according to Coco — mic skills, can rock an awesome 'fro just like the one his father wore proudly in 2011. And judging from the shades and gold chains that accompany his look, he may well be a future Fashion Ump Hall of Famer on his own merits.

Keep on rockin', Caden.
