Hanley Ramirez Takes One for the Team
Mrs. Hanley Ramirez is one devoted wife.
A day after nearly hitting for the first cycle in club history (just a triple shy- he notched two homeruns instead), Hanley Ramirez was out of the starting lineup for tonight's matchup against the Nationals.
The Florida Marlins shortstop skipped the game to be at the hospital with his wife, who is pregnant with the couple's second child. The Mr. and Mrs. induced labor today, with an off-day ahead on the schedule tomorrow, so that Hanley will only miss one start for the Fish.
I'm assuming that inducing labor for the sake of a ballclub's game schedule means the Mrs. at least gets to pick out the kid's name, right?
