All My Children
Avisail Garcia was back in the lineup last night after being away for the birth of his first child, daughter Anarella. While Garcia rejoined the Sox, it’s now Dayan Viciedo’s turn as the Sox outfielder returned to be with his wife who gave birth to the couple’s second child, a daughter named Dayana.
Another Honor for the Chairman
Play of the Day
Welcome back…Avi hit his fifth home run of the season, a two-run blast, and a run-scoring triple in last night’s loss to the Tigers.
Quote of the Day
Robin, who went through the experience of becoming a father when he was a player, talked about what Garcia is going through. And it certainly applies to Viciedo as well.
“For me, my wife was great as far as letting me get a little rest. The adrenaline and the excitement (Avi) has is going to overtake the fatigue he probably has from what he has been through the last few days.”
