Andre Ethier is half Mexican from his mother Priscilla Martinez Ethier. His ancestery from his father Byron Ethier's side comes from his French grandfather and his grandmother who was part Cherokee. I am a family friend and spent many good times in Pete and Evalina Ethier's home.

You're the only one who replied that has a brain. Of course the name Ethier is French and his slanted eyes would reflect his mother's Mexican lineage. It really is a shame that most Americans are xenophobic morons. Good job.
i didn't know that "slanted eyes" was a reflection of somebody's "Mexican lineage". Mexico is not as homogenous as one may think.

My name last is Ithier, which is french. I am Puerto Rican as with the other hundreds of Ithiers(Google it). The family names came over in early 1700's and is pronounced the same. Many of the Ithiers an Eithiers actually came aslaves for the Ithier family who were mass plantation owners, hence the darker complextions in many of us. Dre's dad is a gaeto, light skined spanish man, with th e same french ancestry.
My name is also Ithier and what you are stating is completely correct.. People should really do more re-search instead of just blurring the first thing that comes to their head... His name Ethier has nothing to do with him being Mexican or of French decendents because Ithier's and Ethiers come in all sorts of ethnicities...

On another note there is no use sitting here calling eachother idiots over what the man is.. He is who he is and whoever that might be is not changing the fact that he is still an amazing player.. End of story.. Good day

I am Andre's cousin. And our last name came from our grandfather Pierre Leo Ethier who, to my knowledge was of 100% French decent. As for the rest, he is mexican, from Penny, with a touch of Cherokee from grams (only about 1/16). That's all i have been told/been able to find out from our tree.

Let us set the record straight folks, his father's heritage is "French Canadian", let s all remember that, his mothers roots not withstanding. He cannot be called Mexican under any circumstances.

Andre "The Giant" Ethier is 1/2 Mexican, 1/4 Native American, & 1/4 French. His sweetheart of a Mother (Prascilla) is Mexican & his father (Byron) is 1/2 Native, 1/2 French... I am born & raised in Phoenix, AZ. I was neighbors, classmates, and T-Ball/Little League teammates w/ Andre... For whatever which reason everything Bio wise written about Andre Ethier speaks of his father teaching him how to play baseball & that he is 1 of seven children born to both his parents... This I don't understand because my older brother (RIP) and I lived next to the Ethier family for just shy of a decade as children. The only immediate family Andre had then were his little brother Efrain (I guess he goes by Devon now?) & his Mother Prascilla. The entire time we went to school together/played baseball together I never once met, or even seen his father Byron... I talked to Andre during a game against the Diamondbacks the season before last, I haven't seen him since we were 15 yrs old or so. I let him know of my older brothers (Phillip) passing & asked him to hit a homerun for him... Call it luck or call it fate, Andre's first at bat for that evenings game resulted in a homerun which led to a Dodger victory... Crazy, I know... Andre, here's to you homeboy, CONGRATULATIONS!

THats my team...but it is ETHIER & KEMP that have made me fall in love with another baseball team...THe LA Dodgers. And it doesnt matter what i know about Ethier...What matters is every game im there watching him and cheering him on...b/c he is an amazing ballplayer!!!!! Granted the man is absolutley gorgeous!!!! Those eyes can def put me his game on the field and at bat is absolutley ridiculous...which is why i now own an authentic ETHIER jersey and met him when they played the Mets in NY in April...Mark my words...for years people will be talking about Andre Ethier...they will remember him the way we remember Mickey Mantle, Babe Ruth...Hes going to be HUGE!!!! He already is!! and its the BASEBALL people will remember...not who knew more about him so that must mean you like him more...Grow up! Enjoy hijm, support him!!!
