A World Series berth led to a World Series birth.

While attending Game 1 of the Fall Classic between the Giants and the Royals, Stephanie Hetherington's water broke shortly after batting practice.

Hetherington wasn't due until the following week, so the baby was a surprise, although not nearly as much as, say, the Royals making the World Series.

She considered staying to catch some of the game, but decided against it. She and her husband, Jason, went to the hospital where they watched the game.

And, oh yeah, they had a healthy baby girl, joining their two other daughters.
