Public gender reveals are all the rage these days, and no sport lends itself more to that craze than baseball. After all, anyone can throw a baseball in the air and knock the blue and pink coloring out of it, thus revealing the gender of their baby to the world. Well, except maybe this guy.
Not surprisingly, baseball players are getting in on this trend too. Former World Series hero Christan Colon was among the first. Now we can add Los Angeles Dodgers star Yasiel Puig to the list.
Before the Dodgers took on the Milwaukee Brewers Friday at Dodger Stadium, Puig brought his girlfriend, Andrea, and their son, Daniel, out on the field for their own baseball-themed gender reveal.
Andrea took to Twitter to share photos of the reveal, which we’d say was a pretty cool way to begin Players Weekend in Los Angeles.
Her caption reads:
Today the @dodgers are revealing their new nickname jerseys and our #Family is also revealing…IT’S A BOY! #BuildingOurBaseballTeam #PuigFamily #Boys #Blessed #BigBrotherDanny #MyLoves
Puig’s son Daniel had arguably the best nickname on any Dodgers jersey Friday. It read “Big Brother.” At this time next year, they’ll have a “Little Brother” jersey to go with it.
As for Puig, his jersey read “Wild Horse.” That’s a nickname his style of play helped him earn, and he was on the loose in the Dodgers 3-1 win, making a terrific catch in the third inning to rob Eric Thames of extra bases. Fittingly, he followed that with a solo home run in the sixth inning to provide an insurance run.
We’d say that made two home runs on Friday.
Congratulations to the expecting parents.
