The former MLB star also credited his ex-wife for making the co-parenting process really easy on him and the kids, stating that their time with the kids felt more like a “100-100” split rather than a “50-50” split.

“Living in close proximity and working together despite busy schedules has allowed both of us to remain integral and active in the development of two young women whose future is limitless. And I have you to thank in large part for that,” he added.
