MONTGOMERY, AL (WSFA) -

Kyle Wren is the newest member of the Mississippi Braves outfield.

"I love the Atlanta Braves. It kind of always was the dream to play for them," Kyle Wren said.

Many players say it's a dream to play in the Braves organization but for Kyle it truly is something to cherish. Kyle is the son of Atlanta Braves General Manager Frank Wren.

In fact, Frank Wren was at Riverwalk Stadium Monday night checking out the action between the Biscuits and MBraves and watching his son play.

"It's great! Growing up I had really good instruction, not only from him, but from coaches that were within the Braves organization. He was the main guy that taught me and my brothers how to play the game," Wren said.

Baseball is in the Wren family veins. Long before Frank became the Braves GM, he played in the minor leagues. 

Kyle's younger brother Jordan plays baseball at Samford, and his uncle Jeff currently serves as a scout in the Braves system.

Kyle was drafted in the 8th round of the 2013 draft by Atlanta out of Georgia Tech.

Being in pro ball is a new challenge for Kyle but some things remain the same -- the relationship with his dad is still like old times.

"It's great. I call him after every game. I talk to him like he's my dad. People always ask me if it changes your relationship. No it hasn't. I still talk to him like he's my dad," Wren said.
