Two almost identical-looking athletes who have same name take DNA test to see if they are actually long-lost siblings

Two almost identical-looking athletes who have same name take DNA test to see if they are actually long-lost siblings

The pair had questions when they met in person.

Scientists have said that statistically every person has roughly six doppelgangers out there in the world.

Meaning that there are around six other people who look just like you.

Chances are you'll probably never meet them.

But for two almost identical-looking athletes, the slim chances became a reality.

Brady Feigl, a pitcher for the Long Island Ducks, looks nearly identical to the other Brady Feigl, who is also a pitcher for the Las Vegas Aviators.

Both are 6'4", have fiery red hair and beards, and wear thick glasses.

So you can see why the pair had questions.

One Brady said he was contacted about his surgery to ask when he was coming in for the operation, which he had six months prior.

'I was probably six or seven months out of surgery and their office called our trainer and said, "Hey, when's Brady reporting for surgery? Is he getting down here tomorrow?' he described.

'He was like, "He had it six months ago. What are you talking about?" That's how I found out there were two of us.'

People had been pointing out their similarities for years, so the two Bradys decided to get some answers.

Neither had met anyone else with their last name outside of their families, so they took a DNA test to see if they were actually long-lost siblings - or even related at all.

And to many people's surprise, the DNA test showed that they weren't related at all.

However, it did show that both Bradys had identical Germanic ancestry levels, each registering as 53% Germanic in origin. So while they aren't long-lost siblings, the mystery of their likeness continues.

On other levels, the pair were completely different.

That doesn't stop the Brady connection however.

The baseball players said they were glad to have met each other and that they were 'still brothers in a way' which is very wholesome indeed.

'And we’re always going to be Brady Feigl.'

Their similarities have caused a large amount of confusion among baseball fans.

On one occasion someone wished Brady a happy birthday on X, then Twitter, but tagged the wrong one.

In response, the other baseball star replied: 'Wrong Brady Feigl. Might be looking for @bfeigl39.'

Even if they aren't brothers, both of them are connected for life and share a unique bond that few people experience.
