Fellow Penn alum and former major-leaguer Doug Glanville writes a NYT op-ed about how long is too long when you take leave from your team for your child's birth:
I recall a Philadelphia Phillies teammate, Ron Gant, who had a battle with one of his previous managers on another team over spending too many days at his wife’s bedside after the birth of their child.

Disgust over his taking too long made it into the papers, and the local disapproval became national, as comments flew back and forth about the inappropriateness of Gant’s return timeline. He had failed to remember that the moment it was clear that his wife was O.K. and the baby was O.K., he was supposed to be back in uniform.

It's not the Army, fellas. Easy.
