Wife won’t call Royals’ Zobrist if she goes into labor during Series
Apparently, Julianna isn’t due to give birth until Nov. 10, which would keep Zobrist out of trouble, so to speak. However, just in case, he and his wife have a game plan in place should something happen: She just won’t call him.
Andy McCullough of the Kansas City Star passed along the update on Twitter prior to Game 2 on Wednesday night:
Ben Zobrist says if his wife goes into labor during a game, she won't call him. He said barring an emergency, he wouldn't leave team in NYC.

Tod Palmer, also of the Kansas City Star, followed that up with the terms of Julianna’s agreement with her husband:
Zobrist on Julianna's instructions if she goes into labor while he's in NYC: "You just better hit a home run."

No pressure, Ben!
