ST. LOUIS (AP) -- St. Louis Cardinals batting coach Mark McGwire is back on the job, after missing two games following the birth of triplets to his wife earlier in the week.
Stephanie McGwire had three daughters by Cesarean section on Tuesday, and after a day of recovery the couple named them Monet Rose, Marlo Rose and Monroe Rose. McGwire said their astrological sign is Gemini, and the Gemini flower is the rose, plus he's always liked that name anyway.
McGwire said all the infants, born five weeks premature and all weighing under 5 pounds, were doing well. He said Stephanie McGwire was doing well, also.
McGwire has six children, including one by previous marriage, with first names all beginning with the initial "M," also including Matthew, Max and Mason.
