The New York Mets are the true definition of an average baseball team. Things could be a lot worse, of course, but they could also be a lot better for the MLB ball club. The last thing this team needs is a distraction, but that didn’t stop a player’s wife from delivering some life-altering news in the middle of the game.

As Mets catcher Wilson Ramos made his way to the on-deck circle, the veteran looked focused to get a hit in the fourth inning against the St. Louis Cardinals on Thursday night. Then, all of a sudden, his wife Yely Ramos goes running down the Citi Field steps holding a sign.

It read: “We’re PREGNANT! Wilson, this is your 3rd child. We LOVE YOU!”

Seriously, this actually happened in the middle of a Major League Baseball game.

In a world filled with things like crazy gender reveals, this certainly ranks high on the insane meter. Let’s just say it’s not normal for a significant other to show up to your work to announce a pregnancy for your third child, especially not a baseball game in front of thousands of people.

But that’s what happened here.

The 31-year-old Ramos was caught off guard before his at-bat, which is completely normal. Then he struck out looking and walked back to the dugout, which is exactly the outcome many would expect after such a surprise.

However, the veteran catcher loved it, was shocked, and is excited for his new child on the way.

“That was an amazing moment. She kept that secret really well. She didn’t tell me nothing, eight weeks. That was a great moment.”


Ramos’ wife deserves a lot of creativity for the pregnancy announcement of the couple’s third child.

In 2019, New York Mets catcher Wilson Ramos is batting .275 with seven home runs and 35 RBIs.
