Longoria to be a father
When Rays third baseman Evan Longoria signed his six-year, $100 million extension last month, he talked a lot about wanting to "put roots down" and raise a family in the Tampa Bay area.
Apparently, Longoria will get a start on that soon.
Longoria's girlfriend, Jaime Edmondson (@jaimeedmondson), announced on Twitter over the weekend that the couple is expecting a child, "due spring training '13."
"Evan & I really appreciate all of the kind words & well wishes we have gotten today...we look forward to being parents," Edmondson tweeted.
Edmondson posted a photo, with the title, "We're starting a league of our own," with a small No. 3 Longoria jersey hung up next to one of the All-Star third baseman.
Congratulations to them both... It's been quite a month for Longoria, that's for sure.
