I'm a Yankees fan, but I'm rooting for Daniel Murphy, the Mets player who missed two ballgames for the birth of his first child ["Proud papa Murphy has no regrets," Sports, April 4].

He's a real man who understands that family comes first, and that being a husband and a father is his most important job.
