Here are nine of the most adorable babies of Major League Baseball players

Via @chperez02 on Instagram

With the regular season drawing to a close, many MLB players will soon return home for the offseason to spend time with their families. While missing out on the postseason is obviously a bummer, there's certainly something wonderful about all these big leaguers reuniting with their adorable children they haven't seen as much during the busy season.

And that's because, while all babies are adorable beings, baseball babies happen to be better. It's fact. If you disagree, sorry, you're wrong.

Without further ado, here are nine of the cutest babies belonging to current MLB players.

Jackie Bradley Jr.'s daughter, Emerson

Bradley had a pretty impressive year in center field for the record-setting Red Sox, and perhaps that is thanks to the pep talks he's been getting from his precious 2-year-old daughter. 

Between her dedicated cheering and this incredible outfit, it's safe to say that Emerson is a pretty big Sox fan.

Hernan Perez's son, Christopher

Who could ever forget Christopher's unforgettable bat flip from last year:

But Christopher's 2018 performance was pretty strong as well. Here he is back in Spring Training mimicking a handful of batting stances belonging to his dad's Brewers teammates.

Watch out, Batting Stance Guy, Christopher Perez is coming for ya.

Yoan Moncada's son, Robinson

Named after MLB legend Jackie Robinson, Robinson Moncada is a baseball baby to be reckoned with. At only 4 years old, he already has his own Instagram account full of incredible pictures with big league icons like Albert Pujols, Aaron Judge and Giancarlo Stanton. Oh, and here's Robinson hitting an inside-the-park homer while wearing Jackie's No. 42.

First all star scrimmage. Go WC RED 4u! 🌟⚾️

Denard Span's son, DJ

Sure, DJ isn't even a year old yet, but considering that his mom Anne Schleper won a silver medal with the U.S. ice hockey team at the 2014 Winter Olympics, the athletic future is pretty bright for this small sports child.

YOUR TIME IS COMING SON

The Ken Griffey Jr. backwards hat tribute is an especially nice touch for an 11-month-old baby.

Yonder Alonso's son, Troy

Any baseball baby who knows exactly when to go wild for their dad crushing a grand slam is a good baseball baby. 

Todd Frazier's son, Blake

At only 4 years old, Todd's son Blake has a ways to go in following dad's footsteps to the Little League World Series, but he's off to a pretty good start. Here's a clip of Blake smashing an opposite-field dinger off a tee.

Blake was also all over the Mets' salt-and-pepper celebration from earlier in the season.

Dexter Fowler's daughter, Naya

In April, the Cardinals held a Dexter Fowler bobblehead day at Busch Stadium. This happened to be the first time Fowler had ever gotten the honor of becoming a bobblehead, and Naya seemed pretty stoked about it.

Here she is opening the bobblehead box at home.

And here's an amazing clip of Naya showing off the figurine of her dad at the game.

Brandon McCarthy's daughter, Cassidy

After a successful 13-year big league career, McCarthy recently announced his intention to hang up the cleats at the end of this season.

As a goodbye present for the friends they'd made at SunTrust Park, little Cassidy (with help from mom) went around the stadium passing out treats. 

Freddie Freeman's son, Charlie

This might just be the best swing I've ever seen from a 18-month child
