BLUE SPRINGS, Mo. -- The excitement of the Royals Wildcard game caused one woman to go into labor. Jay and Heather Speer of Excelsior Springs were at home watching the game when Heather started to feel a little bit of pain. Her due date was nearing, but the excitement of Tuesday's Wildcard game pushed things ahead.
"I was having contractions, went to bed at midnight and 3:30 my water broke, and so he was waiting for the Wild Card game, I guess," said Heather Speer, mother.
Jay and Heather named their bundle of joy Breckin William-Hosmer Speer.
