McGwire back on job after birth of triplets
St. Louis Cardinals batting coach Mark McGwire is back on the
job, after missing two games following the birth of triplets to his
wife earlier in the week.
Stephanie McGwire had three daughters by Cesarean section on
Tuesday, and after a day of recovery the couple named them Monet
Rose, Marlo Rose and Monroe Rose. McGwire said their astrological
sign is Gemini, and the Gemini flower is the rose, plus he’s always
liked that name anyway.
McGwire said all the infants, born five weeks premature and all
weighing under 5 pounds, were doing well. He said Stephanie McGwire
was doing well, also.
McGwire has six children, including one by previous marriage,
with first names all beginning with the initial “M,” also
including Matthew, Max and Mason.
