Just not on the soft spot: Nationals shortstop Ian Desmond signs a baby (photo)


Before taking the field and making a big contribution to a 4-3 victory over the Miami Marlins by going 3-4 and knocking in a run, Washington Nationals shortstop Ian Desmond sauntered over to some fans whose day at the ballpark would not have been complete unless their baby was autographed.

Desmond obliged. Dustin M. Smith, the presumed father of the autograph baby tweeted, “Thanks again for signing our baby!” and attached the above photo documenting Desmond’s baby-signing skills.

Sure, I could make a Ricky Bobby reference here, but that seems just too easy. I guess my indicating I wouldn’t be making a Ricky Bobby reference I actually made a Ricky Bobby reference. Huh.
