Atlanta Braves' Freddie Freeman hits it out of the park for baby's gender reveal

Attention all couples: It's time to step up your game for your next baby gender reveal party. Freddie Freeman of the Atlanta Braves and his wife, Chelsea, just hit their reveal out of the park!

The couple, surrounded by family and friends, took to the ballpark to find out if they should make way for a little boy or a little girl. The plan? Chelsea Freeman would pitch, her husband would hit, and the ball would explode in either a blue powder or a pink, indicating the sex of the baby.

The 26-year-old baseball player stood back, bat in hand, as his wife lobbed a pitch his way. The second he hit the ball with the bat, it was a home run!

Actually, it was blue powder, indicating a boy, but by the cheers of the overjoyed parents-to-be and their loved ones, Freddie Freeman might as well have made his way around the bases.
