Weaver a Father
Jeff Weaver became a father for the first time Wednesday with the birth of Drake, which Weaver admitted brought tears to his eyes.
“You try to keep it together, but when it finally goes down, everything is overwhelming,” he said.
Weaver missed three days of practice and estimated he got five hours of sleep in three days. His parents came to the Phoenix area from Southern California and were joined by Angels pitcher and brother Jared for the birth. – Ken Gurnick
