A month and a half ago, Atlantic League ballplayer Matthew LeCroy, 32, received a life-changing phone call from his wife Holly, breaking the news that a baby had been born and was in need of a home. Within seven days of the call, the LeCroys had welcomed a 5-week-old newborn named Noah, their third child and first son.

The accelerated addition has been another twist in the tale of how the LeCroys have built their family. When Matthew and Holly were told they would not be able to have children of their own, they welcomed daughter Isabella, 4, through adoption in 2004. Miraculously, the couple became pregnant the next year with daughter Maggie, 2½. Rest assured, the family will most likely add to their expanding brood in the future, with the former Minnesota Twins’ player sharing that he "wouldn’t mind having four or five."
