Michael Batiste, the American center of Panathinaikos who stands out for… his long socks, became a father for the first time in his life!

Batiste has yet to play for Panathinaikos this season partly due to an injury, but he was also away in the United States standing by his wife who was due to give birth. And some days ago she did and now Mike Batiste is a proud and happy father of a son.

Unfortunately for him he had to leave his newborn son and wife behind and return to Athens because he needs to get ready for the tough season.
