Helton welcomes new daughter
First baseman Todd Helton is more or less a father figure around the Rockies’ clubhouse, but that’s only what happens at work. In a much bigger move, he became a father in real life for the second time. His wife, Christy, gave birth to the couple’s second child, Gentry Grace Helton, on Wednesday. She weighed in at 7 pounds, 3 ounces. The couple have another daughter, Tireney Faith Helton, who turns 7 on Sept. 24.
Helton was in the lineup for Wednesday night’s game against the Reds.
