  Guam Couple Welcomes First U.S. Baby of 2018, Joining Other New Year's Babies Born Worldwide New year, new lives. As the world celebrated the arrival of 2018, lucky parents around the globe were celebrating the arrivals of new babies who made their debuts just as the new year was dawning. A Guam couple welcomed the very first U.S. birth of the New Year. Just two seconds after midnight on the U.S. island territory in the Western Pacific, Jennica Lynch and Davante Perez welcomed 6-lb., 15-oz. Logan James Lynch Perez as fireworks burst into the sky nearby. “It was painful, but it was worth it,” Lynch told the Pacific Daily News. “He’s a handsome, healthy baby.” Dr. Thomas Shieh told the publication the birth was “all natural, not induced,” adding that the hospital has a policy against inducing labor when trying for the first baby of the year. Little Logan was immediately showered with gifts after his debut, including a gift basket with goodies worth $200 from the family of Kylie Ray Tesalona, 2017’s first New Year’s baby. The family reportedly wanted to pay forward the generosity they received after Kylie’s birth. “It’s exciting, we’re blessed,” Lynch told the Pacific Daily News while cradling her newborn son. “We’re thankful for everything.” Meanwhile, 15 hours and one minute after Logan’s birth, New York City welcomed its first baby of 2018 — a 4-lb., 11-oz. girl — at 12:01 a.m. “They’re very happy to have a little baby girl and she’s adorable, they’re just thrilled to be parents,” Dr. Andrew Rubin, of Flushing Hospital in Queens, told the New York Post.

"Players from that era owe us a little bit of honesty," Ricketts said. "The only way to turn that page is to put everything on the table.

"I think we have to be sympathetic to that era ... but the players owe us some honesty, too."

Sosa never officially tested positive for steroids during his career. However, he was one of the players to be listed as testing positive in baseball's 2003 anonymous survey on PED use, the results of which were revealed by the New York Times in 2009.

In that same interview, Sosa said he would say yes if the Cubs invited him back.

Sosa hit 545 of his 609 career home runs as a member of the Cubs, where he spent 13 seasons of his 18-year career. The 49-year-old continues to receive little Hall of Fame support, receiving just 8.6 percent of the vote in his fifth year of eligibility in 2017.
