Baby Pronk is born
Congrats go out to Travis Hafner and his wife, Amy, who became the proud parents of a baby boy Wednesday.
Here’s the best part. The kid’s name? Blake Lee Hafner.
I asked if the name is an homage to two of Hafner’s former teammates (he was particularly good buddies with Casey Blake) and was told that Pronk simply loved the name Blake and is firmly expecting to get all kinds of grief from the Dodgers third baseman.
Little Blake is not so little. He weighed in at 9 pounds, 6 ounces.
The Hafner family is said to be doing well.
