Here’s A First: Baby Born At Ballpark
(Yahoo) – “We know the Pittsburgh Pirates are in the business of acquiring a lot of young and cheap talent, but the location of their newest find really took things to the extreme. Trevor Gooby — the team’s director of Florida operations — helped deliver a baby boy to a woman who went into labor at the Pirates’ spring training facility in Bradenton, Fla., on Tuesday night. The baby’s mother, Latisha Kirk, was about 8 1/2 months pregnant and was attending the spring opening of McKechnie Field when she unexpectedly went into labor near the front gate. Gooby saw the woman in distress, jumped into action and delivered the newest baby Bucco a few minutes later.”
This birth is the most exciting thing in 15 years for the Pittsburgh Pirates organization.
