Red Sox nation has grown by one, now that outfielder Jason Bay and wife Kristen have welcomed daughter Evelyn Jane Bay. Jason had been on a road trip but flew home to Boston with little time to spare, arriving at the hospital less than an hour before Evelyn’s 6:45 p.m. birth on Tuesday night.

Red Sox manager Terry Francona joked before Tuesday’s game that while he had been holding out hope for Kristen to be induced on Thursday, an off-day for the team, baby-on-the-way "just wouldn’t cooperate."

Evelyn joins big sister Addison, 22 months on Friday, at home.

Is this guy a new player with the Red Sox??? I’ve never heard of him and I live in Boston…

I love how the old names have come back in the past few years. Evelyn is such a pretty name and her full name really flows well.

Uh, yeah Kayla, he’s only the guy who was traded for Manny Ramirez. There may have been a news story or ten about it in the past few months.

He took Manny Ramirez place… he’s been here for a while. Awesome player. Adorable name. They announced she had been born at a little past eight during Tuesday’s game. He must’ve rushed to call his manager.🙂

Kayla, Jason replaced Manny Ramirez when he left the Sox for LA this past summer.

Congrats to them!
