Dustin Pedroia's Wife Has Baby Boy

Boston Red Sox second baseman Dustin Pedroia's wife, Kelli, had a baby boy on Thursday morning. Pedroia left the stadium in the middle of Wednesday night's game against the New York Yankees as his wife went into labor.

Pedroia will be out of the lineup on Thursday and possibly Friday night as he tends to his wife and their newborn son.

SB Nation's Baseball Nation uncovered some video of Pedroia when he heard the news of his wife going into labor, and offered up this tweet from the New York Yankees official twitter account:

Pedroia would have been at the plate in the eighth with the Red Sox trailing, 5-4. Instead, Ivan De Jesus came to bat.
