Jon Lester’s wife gave birth to a son right after the lefthander’s start in Baltimore Sept. 28. If you’re a parent, you know how nerve-wracking the days leading up to and then after the birth can be. You are nervous, sleepless, excited, overwhelmed, emotional, proud.
It’s a huge time in Lester’s life. If you’re the average American worker, you get a little time off to relish the moment and help out with the baby.
