Ryu Hyun-jin of the Toronto Blue Jays became a father on Sunday. His wife Bae Ji-hyun gave birth to a baby girl, Ryu's management agency said in a press release.
"I feel grateful that my wife and daughter are both healthy in this unstable situation with coronavirus," Ryu said via the agency.
The couple are in Dunedin, Florida, where the Blue Jays were in spring training until it was suspended due to coronavirus.
Ryu is training privately while waiting for the Major League Baseball season to start when the pandemic eases. He is unable to move to the club's home city due to entry restrictions Canada has imposed to non-Canadian travelers.
The couple married in June 2018.
