WTFriday: Bellies and Baseball?

If you’re a pregnant baseball fan in Brooklyn you’re in luck! Maybe.

The Cyclones, Brooklyn’s minor league baseball team, are hosting “Bellies & Baseball: A Salute to Pregnancy."

Some of the Highlights include:

Barefoot & Pregnant: Expectant moms can run (or, more likely, walk) the bases with no shoes on before the game. We got winded on the walk to the field, so running the bases is out.

Craving Station: A table on the Concourse level will offer pickles, ice cream, anchovy pizza, etc. for pregnant women who crave more than the usual ballpark fare. Inevitably whatever we're craving, you don't have--and our DHs are going to have to go somewhere else to get it.

7th Inning Stretch Marks: Pregnant women will be allowed onto the field in the 7th inning to sing Take Me Out to the Ballgame. Stretch marks are not to be sung about!

Special Delivery: Any woman who gives birth at the ballpark before the end of the game gets free Cyclones Season Tickets for life for each member of her new family. I want my Ob-gyn, not your team doc, delivering my baby.

Pregnancy Pitch: Any woman in her third trimester gets to throw out a ceremonial first pitch before the game. Most people laughed at the president's All-Star game pitch, there's no way I'm striding out to the mound.

Thanks for including us, but we'll watch baseball in our air-conditioned homes—where we don't have to wait in line during our constant bathroom breaks.
