Chooch is reproducing!
He's also WINNING. He named his son Carlos, to complement his other son, 8-year-old Carlos Jr. Yep, just like the six George Foremans. Amazing.
The team did not disclose the nature of the family matter, but a source close to Ruiz told ESPNdeportes.com that the catcher's wife had a Cesarean section on Tuesday. Her doctors recommended the procedure because the baby was in an awkward position.
The baby boy, who weighed 9 pounds at birth, is the couple's first child, and Ruiz's second.
He looked liked a Carlos.
Now, more Carlos(es?). As reader Schultzie pointed out, Carlos was born nearly nine months to the day of Roy Halladay's perfect game. Hmm.
