YES has a new show called YESterdays. It’s a look back at a person’s life with assorted special guests. The show on Alex Rodriguez will be premiering on Wednesday after the Indians-Yankees game at approximately 11 p.m.
The folks at YES were nice enough to send over a transcript of some of the comments. Here is Cynthia Rodriguez talking about how Alex handled the birth of their first daughter:
“As tough and big as he seems, he is real wimpy around doctors or any type of medical situation. I donâ€™t know why I thought the birth of our child would be different. In the middle of the night, I realized that I needed to go to the hospital. I wake him up. The first thing that comes out of his mouth, ‘Can we call your mother?’ And I started, ‘No. Letâ€™s wait and make sure that I am in labor, and make sure that, you know, itâ€™s the middle of the night.’ And go to the hospital and everything. And finally, a few hours later, I said, ‘I think you can call my mom now.’
“Uh, and the color came back to his face when I told him he could call my mom. And then forget it. I was like not even having a baby; he was the one. The one nurse had a cold cloth on his head. The other nurse had the blood pressure on his arm. And my mother was like rubbing his back. And he is passed out on a couch. And I am there, in the middle of labor. And really, I am not being paid much attention to besides the doctor and a couple of nurses. And he is there moaning. In between pushing, I am going, ‘Honey, are you OK?’ And are you breathing? Are you OK?’ “
