The cryin' Hawaiian: The Shane Victorinos are expecting

Phillies centerfielder Shane Victorino has something else to look forward to in October, besides the prospect of playing in another postseason.

Victorino's wife, Melissa, is due with their second child, a Phillies source confirmed.

Daughter Kali'a Makenna is 3. Melissa has a teenage son, Keenan.

The couple, together six years, were married last November.

Earlier this month, they announced the creation of the Shane Victorino Foundation, benefiting youth in Philly and his native Hawaii.. They pledged $900,000 to Boys & Girls Clubs of Philadelphia to renovate its Nicetown unit.
