This Father’s Day will have a little extra meaning for Jackie Bradley Jr.

That’s because the Boston Red Sox outfielder recently welcomed a new member to his family when his wife, Erin, gave birth to the couple’s first daughter, Emerson. Bradley has plenty on his plate already as one of the top hitters in Boston’s lineup this season, but he knows his responsibilities at the ballpark pale in comparison to those of being a dad.

Watch Bradley discuss the excitement that comes with being a father in the “Red Sox Gameday Live” video above.
