Jennie Finch, member of the USA defending gold medal softball team, is currently competing at the 2008 Olympics in Beijing, China. The downside? Being away from her 2-year-old son, Ace Shane, with husband (Minnesota Twins AAA league pitcher) Casey Daigle. Jennie said she is keeping in touch with Ace over the phone while she competes in China,
“The other day we counted to 11 on the phone. You just have to kind of trick him, you know, to talk about giraffes or elephants or something like that. He told me he loves me to the moon and back the other night. They did say though that he saw me on TV the other night at Opening Ceremonies and he shouted, ‘Momma’ and was jumping off the couches, so, that kind of made it all better, knowing that he’s hopefully a proud two-year-old back home.”
Jennie is also known for her role on Donald Trump’s Celebrity Apprentice last winter.
