Trevor Gooby, head of Florida operations for the Pirates and Bradenton Marauders, delivers a baby Tuesday night during a special event for season ticket holders.
Editor's Note: Bradenton Patch, which covers all things Bradenton, including Pirates spring training, filed this story.

On Saturday, Matt Richards helped his wife, Concetta, give birth to little Isabella on the side of Interstate 279 near the Camp Horne Road exit. The couple had been on the way to West Penn Hospital in Bloomfield, when Concetta, who was in the throes of labor pains, told her husband she wasn’t going to make it the rest of the way. He thought she was just being dramatic. She wasn’t. As Richards pulled to the side of the road, Concetta’s water broke. Even after opening the passenger door to their truck and seeing his wife in labor, Richards said he still couldn’t quite comprehend what was happening. “I said, …
