Heidi Hamels in labor

Cole Hamels did not enjoy a strong postseason start this afternoon, allowing four runs in five innings, but that was hardly the most important event in his life today. Hamels’ wife, Heidi, went into labor during the game. The Inquirer reported in June that Hamels and his wife were expecting a son, their first child. They also intend to adopt a child from Ethiopia next year. "We still plan on adopting," Hamels said in June. The pregnancy "is something we were planning on doing anyway. We're going to adopt a girl, and it will be great for her to grow up with a brother. They'll be like twins."
