Baseball veteran and current Cleveland Indian, Johnny Damon will reportedly miss some time this summer.
Not due to illness, injury, or manager’s decision…. But due to paternity leave.
Look, the birth of a child is a life changing event. I get that. And I get missing a game or two if necessary. But I can honestly say I’ve never heard of a player taking an extended leave due to the birth of a child.
Most Tribe fans won’t be too upset to see him leave, but very odd.
