Having missed the last two games while his wife gave birth to his second child, Derrek Lee was anxious to get to the ballpark and celebrate. Did he ever! Derrek had a big hit day in New York as the Cubs beat the NY Mets 5-3. Lee smashed two very long, very high bombs into the upper decks in a ballpark that isn’t very Homer Friendly. Speaking of HR’s, Derrek’s 6yr old daughter, Jada, is constantly requesting her big Papa to hit HR’s for her. Says Derrek “Man, now I’ve got to hit a Home Run for you AND Dylan. It’s going to be tough!” Well, he came through with flying colors in his first attempt at keeping his babies happy. What a great memory for him and a heckuva welcome to his new son! Here’s to you Dylan Lee! Watch his bombs Here!
