Wilson Ramos Learns Wife Is Pregnant While in On Deck Circle

Wilson Ramos stepped into the on-deck circle to prepare for his second at-bat. He headed to the plate with his third child on the way.

In a 10-year career encompassing more than 800 games and nearly 3,000 at-bats, Ramos’ otherwise ordinary exercise resulted in a massive surprise when his wife, Yeli, walked up to the protective netting behind home plate and held up a sign toward the Mets catcher, alerting him that she was expecting.

“We’re pregnant! Wilson, this is your 3rd child. We love you!” the sign read.

"This is your third child" feels like an unnecessary thing to include on the sign, or am I missing something?

There was previous uncertainty about the parentage of No. 2?

How she got into the on deck circle I'll never know.

That's a lot better than your wife getting pregnant while you're in the on deck circle.

Or it could be the best way ever to get ready for your AB.

To quote the Rolling Stones: "Is it really true what they do around there, people?"

Ramos then walked to the plate, where he struck out.
Not a good idea. #over-sharing.

Unnecessary for Ramos, but necessary for the strangers on the Internet who she expects to photograph and publicize her sign for her.

“Ma, ma, where’s my Pa?”

“In the on deck circle, ha ha ha!”
   10. Howie Menckel Posted: June 15, 2019 at 04:17 PM (#5852270)
imagine if she has 5 or 6 young ones at home!
   11. The Duke Posted: June 15, 2019 at 05:06 PM (#5852277)
Or if she only has one
   12. Master of the Horse Posted: June 15, 2019 at 05:23 PM (#5852279)
I thought it was kind of cool. Certainly has a story now to tell at the kid's graduation party or wedding or whatever when the opportunity comes

I have mentioned that I went to Catholic high school with the blonde one from that incident.

[13] So, David Cone and Howie have her phone number ;-)

Thanks for the Tito Fuentes ref.

Wait, why didn't this happen right before his first AB? Waiting on doctors confirmation or something?
