The Newest Marlins Fan

Manager Joe Girardi's wife, Kim, gave birth to the newest Marlins fan.  At least, I hope she will grow up being a fan of the Fish.

Kim Girardi, the wife of manager Joe Girardi, gave birth to a healthy baby girl just after 4 p.m. Tuesday. Lena Yvonne is 19 inches long and weighs 7 pounds.

Sounds like she was born a healthy girl.

"Lena", a pretty name, though it may cause a slight problem.  It's been a while since I went looking for names on those souvenir license plates or something similar at Disney World.  But I'm guessing our newest addition to the Marlins fan base may have a challenging time in locating her name amongst the selections offered.  If that is the only problem the child ever faces, she will have lived a charmed life and hopefully a charmed life is in her future.

We at FishStripes send a hearty:

Congratulations to the Girardi Family!
