Dodger’s play-by-play announcer, Joe Davis, announced the birth of his and his wife Libby’s third child Friday morning and within that announcement was a surprise for his coworker/color commentator and best friend Dodger legend Orel Hershiser.
The new addition’s name: Theodore Orel Davis.
Baby update: Theo — Theodore Orel Davis — arrived late last night. Yet to allow a run.

Hershiser took the news in stride but I have a feeling he had to hold back some tears while typing this response.
I am so humbled and honored ! Libby, Joe, Charlotte, Blake and Theodore Orel Davis we love you to the moon!

To those who listen to the Dodgers’ broadcast team, this is not a surprise as we have been with these two from the beginning of their friendship but that doesn’t mean we didn’t get all the feels because we definitely got all the feels.
