Thanks to fatherhood, Rolen is reborn Scott Rolen is in a good place right now. The former Phillies third baseman is the father of two - daughter Raine and son Finn - and he is headed to his first All-Star Game since 2006 because of the way he's playing for the first-place Cincinnati Reds.

His first waking thought, the longtime Phillies manager once said, was always about the epic collapse of his 1986 California Angels.
