New Year, New Beginnings for New Yankees’ Ace

New York Yankees, Gerrit Cole

A new year brings new beginnings for everyone, and Yankees players are no different. It didn’t take long for Gerrit Cole to announce some pretty big news, that’s also life-altering.

New Papa Ace

Shortly after the start of 2020, Gerrit Cole and his wife, Amy, announced that she’s expecting. With a due date sometime in June, this is truly a happy occasion for the young couple. Yes, his impending paternity leave will require him to miss a couple of starts in June, and he may miss a small handful here and there baring any unforeseen emergencies/difficulties Amy Cole could potentially experience during her pregnancy. But I think we can all find it in our hearts (and minds) that a new baby trumps Cole’s responsibilities during the first half of the season. Brian Cashman and Hal Steinbrenner certainly will.

From all of us here at Empire Sports Media, congratulations to Gerrit and Amy Cole on their wonderful news!
