Carlos Ruiz’s wife gave birth exactly nine months after Roy Halladay’s perfect game

carlos ruiz and roy halladay phillies perfect game

Carlos Ruiz’s wife gave birth yesterday and, as Bryan Graham of amusingly points out, the couple’s second child arrived “nine months to the day of Roy Halladay’s perfect game.”

Even better, the baby boy’s name is Carlos. But not Carlos Jr., because Ruiz’s first son already got that name when he was born eight years ago. Seriously.

It’s not quite George Foreman naming all five of his sons George, but it’s pretty close.

I’d have voted for “Chooch” as the name, obviously.
