It’s a girl for Chicago White Sox pitcher Mark Buehrle and wife Jamie! Their daughter Brooklyn Jayden Buehrle was born Tuesday, March 3rd in Missouri, where the couple resides.

One day before, Mark, 29, left his team in order to attend the birth — which was timed perfectly; Manager Ozzie Guillen said he intended to skip Mark’s next scheduled start in order to rest his arm. Although Mark said he hoped to stay loose by “playing catch” during his six-day paternity leave, baseball was going to be low on his list of priorities! “I’ll be there for my family,” he said.

Brooklyn joins big brother Braden David, 19 months, at home.
