Boston Sox Player Dustin Pedroia Welcomes Son

Dustin PedroiaAfter a brush with preterm labor last month, Dustin Pedroia’s wife, Kelli, delivered a healthy baby boy on Tuesday, August 18th.  This is the first child for the couple.  The boy, whom they christened Dylan weighed in at 7 lbs.

Dustin Pedroia is the second baseman for the Boston Red Sox.  There were concerns he wouldn’t be able to make it to the birth but he made it just in the nick of time with a last-minute flight back from Toronto to be at his wife’s side.

His teammates have all been supportive.  Says Kevin Youkilis:

“I think it’s great for him after everything she’s been through [referring to her brush with preterm labor], Dustin’s been through mentally. It’s going to be a great thing for Dustin.”

Manager Terry Francona has put no pressure on the new Dad’s return, saying: “I told him his first responsibility is Kelli and that child.” Wish all bosses would show the same support, eh?

Congratulations to the new parents!
