NEW YORK — Josh Beckett is keeping an eye on his cell phone this weekend. His wife, Holly, is back in Boston waiting to deliver the couple's first child. The baby was due two days ago.
Beckett is scheduled to pitch on Monday in Baltimore. If the baby hasn't arrived by then, labor will be induced. Then Beckett — hopefully — will prepare for his playoff start.
"I'm excited about the baby," Beckett said. "We're all about ready by now."
