The Pittsburgh Pirates are currently at McKechnie Field in Bradenton, Florida, doing their spring training.
Yesterday, at the Pirates’ “soft opening” event, local resident Latasha Kirk — pregnant, but not due until April 1 — went into labor early.
As she was making her way back to the ballpark’s entrance to meet EMS, she gave birth to a baby boy. (He arrived even before the ambulance did.)
What did she name him?
McKechnie, after the field.
(The field is named for hall-of-famer William Boyd McKechnie.)
