High school baseball team can name coach’s baby after winning 14 games


A High school baseball team has been giving naming rights for their coach’s baby after winning 14 games. According to Mashable.com, Palm Bay, Florida, coach Rob Querry promised the Heritage High School Panthers they could name his unborn child if they won 14 games. And win 14 games they did. The Panthers were a long shot to achieve their goal. When Querry proposed the deal, they hadn’t won a single game. But the desire to name a human child is a powerful one, and the Panthers pulled through with the first winning season in team history. The name they picked is “Benny Smalls” named after Scotty Smalls and Benny “The Jet” Rodriguez from the baseball movie The Sandlot. Benny is due in September.  Read the article here.
