Corey Brock of MLB.com reports that a baby — an actual human baby — was born at Petco Park during the fourth inning of last night’s Padres-Giants game.
The baby’s name is Levi, and he was born on the concourse near the team store, Brock says. I hope the team threw in a free Padres onesie. Those things are expensive and that baby gave the Padres their only good P.R. in months.
The baby was delivered by Donna Borowy, an R.N./midwife who works for the Padres. This makes her the first person to bring young talent to the Padres since Jed Hoyer left to join the Cubs. Unlike Anthony Rizzo, however, let’s hope the baby stays in San Diego. Though I wouldn’t put it past A.J. Preller to trade him to the Braves for some overpriced veteran talent. That’s just what he does.
Anyway, Alexi Amarista may have hit the walkoff single that won the game, but this is the true hero from last night:
