Baseball fans are already loving his name, too. The initials spell out B-A-T.
“Were the initials BAT intentional? What a cute little guy. Congratulations! Hope mama and baby are both doing well!” one fan wrote in response to the name.
“This man is gonna be just like Mike. Can’t wait to see him get called up in 2041,” another fan added.
“His son’s initials are B.A.T. Can this dad be anymore a baseball typa guy?” one fan wrote.
The name has a special meaning to Mike and Jessica, though. Jessica’s late younger brother was named Aaron. He was extremely close with both Mike and Jessica, but tragically committed suicide in 2018. The name is likely a tribute to Aaron, who was drafted by the Angels in 2018.
Congrats to the happy couple on the joyous day.
