Raul Ibanez had to leave the Yankees' AL East celebration early, but he had a good reason. He was having his fifth child.

A boy named Luca. Mom and son are doing fine, Ibanez said.

"I was opening a couple of bottles and I was told by Mark [Kafalas from Yankee security] that I had to go," Ibanez said. "And I was gone."

Ibanez made it to the hospital in time and now he has two boys and three girls.

"It turned out to be a great day for a celebration," Ibanez said.
