Congratulations to Arizona Wildcats softball great Jennie Finch, who told People that she is pregnant.

This will be the second child for Finch and her husband Casey Daigle, who pitched in 13 games last season for the Houston Astros. Ace is 4 years old.

Finch, 30, wrote on Twitter: So happy 2 share our baby news & relieved because there is no more sucking this poor baby in! Baby Deuce (Ace & now Deuce) is poppin out!

The name Ace was a nod to the couple’s pitching prowess.

Might we suggest Win for a boy — although that fortuitous pitcher’s name wasn’t so successful for former Boston Red Sox hurler Win Remmerswaal — and Wynne for a girl?

Finch won an NCAA-record 60 consecutive games at Arizona and led UA to the 2001 national title.
