Abraham Toro parents Douglas Toro and Yamila Hernandez are educators in Canada. Abraham has one brother and one sister.

His older brother Douglas Toro is a baseball player, while his sister Kimberling Toro is a Consultant.

The 26-year-old third baseman Abraham Toro always had his family to support him. And it was his older brother Douglas who played a major role in his development. Older than him by more than a decade, the siblings share a tight-knit bond.

Currently, his family members are supporting him at World Baseball Classic as he is representing Team Canada and will next face Patrick Sandoval and Austin Barnes, Team Mexico. 

At the team level, Abraham earlier this year in January signed with the Brewers, joining Keston Hirua and Brian Anderson, bidding goodbye to the Mariners.

Abraham Toro parents Douglas Toro and Yamila Hernandez raised three kids in Canada. Their nationality is Venezuelan.

Douglas and Yamila have Venezuelan roots and moved to Canada in 1995, a year before the baseballer was born. A man with a hold in three languages, Abraham prefers to speak Spanish with his parents whenever they call him.

His dad, Douglas, is a huge baseball fan, and his love for the game was shared by his kids, especially his two sons. Douglas, unlike his wife, remains away from the public spotlight and hasn't been pictured in the photos shared by his kids on social media pages.

Yamila Hernandez can never forget the call she received in August 2019. Even before Abraham could reveal to her the news about his MLB debut, Yamila had already understood what he was going to say just because of the way he said, mom.

Speaking to CBC in 2019, Yamila recounted the moment Abraham made the call and the very next moment she was on a plane returning to Houston to see her son make his MLB debut.

On Instagram, Yamila can be seen sharing photos of her trips to several baseball stadiums rooting for her son with her other two children. Previously, Yamila was a frequent visitor at Minute Maid Park and would be seen dawning the Astros jersey.

On September 1, 2019, at Roger Center in his homeland Canada, Abraham Toto hit a two-run home run, the first of his career. The next day on her Instagram, Yamila was seen showing the baseball that had now been encased in a box, and she wrote the caption, "Proud, proud, and proud."

The mother-of-three updates her Instagram daily, sharing glimpses of she and her children supporting Team Canada in the World Baseball Classic. She was at Chase Field to see Team Canada win phenomenally over Colombia.
