AJ Ellis' wife Cindy Ellis has three kids, and the youngest one was delivered by none other than AJ himself. That's right, and not only that, but AJ delivered her in a moving automobile. It's sort of like one of those 90's goofball comedies that's supposed to appeal to families. You know, one with Robin Williams or Hugh Grant bumbling through stuff and getting into wacky situations.

Well, Cindy Ellis created "In Labor!" signs that she posted on the windows of the car as they were speeding along the freeway. How awesome is that? You can get away with driving like a GTA4 player when you've got those bad-boys on your windows. They were also using some kind of labor timing app to determine how far apart her contractions were happening. This was all happening in New York City at the time. This was also the first time AJ was present at the actual birthing process, as he'd missed his previous chillun's popping out of the ole' kidpipe both times.

Cindy's water actually broke on 79th Street in Manhattan, and they were on their way to the NYU Hospital which is located at 30th Street. That's sort of troubling because Manhattan, if you've never been, is a veritable stop-and-go breaking test along the avenues. For whatever reason, AJ's wife Cindy really could not keep that baby from coming. He figured that they'd have plenty of time, but as their trip continued, she got real close. He asked one traffic cop for help, was ignored, and then asked another. The second cop jumped in his cruiser and switched on the sirens. At that point her contractions were every fifteen seconds. You can guess what happened from there. By the time they pulled up to the NYU Hospital, Cindy's sister was assisting their baby's exit from Goop Canal, and a crowd had gathered to see the "car baby."

For a guy used to catching things for a living, this was no doubt the best catch in his family's history.

Don Mattingly's wife Lori Mattingly comes first and that fact was never more evident than on their wedding day, December 10, 2010.

Mattingly was on board and set to begin his first season with the Los Angeles Dodgers. Naturally, part of managing involves having say in personnel decisions, but rather than attending the all important winter meetings that season, Donnie Baseball returned to his hometown of Evansville, Indiana to marry Lori. Lori brought two sons to their marriage, ages 15 and 13. Not much else is known about Lori Mattingly, but the proud wife has occasionally tweeted support for her husband and the entire Dodgers squad.

Mattingly has been through this before. Don Mattingly married his first wife, Kim Sexton in September of 1979. The couple has three adult sons, two of whom had brief minor league stints before hanging up the spikes.

Everyone wants to know about Yasiel Puig's girlfriend Nicole Chaves. The sports world is buzzing with Cuban sensation Yasiel Puig's electric debut with the Los Angeles Dodgers. And after four plus years of running this site, we've learned one thing: when the sports world buzzes about an athlete, the internet goes buzzing looking for his girlfriend.

After some research, one one tip to our inbox, we think we've narrowed things down. While there is officially zero confirmation on this fact, the best information available seems to point to the most recent version of Yasiel Puig's girlfriend as Nicole Chaves. Nicole Chaves is the daughter of Dodgers minor league pitching coordinator, Rafael Chaves and is rumored to have been dating Puig as recently as spring training of 2013, at which point it was confirmed that Puig did have a girlfriend with him at Dodgers camp in Arizona. There were also rumors floated that the couple was expecting a child together, but no confirmation to that point. Most of what we've found seems to indicate that the couple has split (or frankly never was together), which would make sense considering Puig headed off to AA Chattanooga, and Chaves attends Arizona State University.

Again, there is no confirmation that the two are currently, or ever were dating. However, as Puig's stock and star continue to rise, I'm sure there will be more information to come out. Keep it here for more as it comes.
