Janis Joplin once sang that freedom is just another word for being able to name your kid
whatever you want.
Superstar Olympian softball queen Jennie Finch and her
husband, former major leaguer Casey Daigle(notes),
exercised their parental rights recently in announcing the birth of their second
child — a son called Diesel Dean Daigle.
3D is all the rage!
Thanks to the official paper of record — People magazine — we know that Diesel already sports some
impressive stats: Born on Sunday night, he weighs 8 pounds, 2 ounces and is 22
1/4 inches long. Holy cow!
Finch added, via her
Our sweet precious Baby Diesel! Thank you all for your sweet prayers, praise
God he is doing wonderful!
Here’s what Jennie and Casey probably are
thinking regarding the name: The couple named their first child Ace Shane. Given the parents’ respective
backgrounds, calling him “Ace,” strikes me (get it?) as putting too much
pressure on the young man to follow in the family’s vocational footsteps. Mom’s
a pitcher, dad’s a pitcher — so the boy’s gotta be a pitcher!
The Finches-Daigles aren’t doing that this time. Naming son No. 2 “Diesel”
opens up many possibilities for the kid.
Diesel Dean Daigle was born June 19th, 2011
