Yankee Universe Adds Another Member!

Derek John was born today at 11:44 a.m.  He weighs 7 pounds 6 ounces and is 19 1/4 inches long.  Everyone is doing well.  Thanks to everyone for all their well wishes and support.     

As requested I have added a picture of the little guy.  Unfortunately he is in the NICU, so the picture I have is him minutes after he was born.  DJ is having some respiratory issues, but he is improving.Derek_john_3

  • congratulations, John!

  • Congrats John!
    I recommend Alex as a second middle name! When A-Rod breaks the HR record in pinstripes you can tell him he was born on the same day he decided to resign with the yankees!

    My eyes widened a bit at the “19 inches”, but then I saw that was actually his height.

  • Congratulations!!!
    Can’t wait till he becomes a Red Sox fan in an act of ‘teenage defiance’. I promise we’ll treat him right!

  • Congratulations Trisk! I see how the first name of “Derek” was chosen, but I’m touched you chose to name his middle name after our closer. It’s beautiful!
    Also, we demand that you post pictures.

  • Your closer spells his name Jonathan!

  • Um, Derek’s Dad’s name is John…
    If the middle name had been “Paps” that might have been more of a clue.

  • Amazing coincidence:
    newborn Derek’s length is identical to his namesake’s range!

  • Sam, my first son’s middle name is Alex, but I like the way you think!
    Thank you all for all your well wishes. I will keep you updated! He seems to be improving!
