Sports briefs: Baby Brady on board

It’s official: Tom Brady is a dad. The New England Patriots’ quarterback and former Serra High School of San Mateo star became a first-time father when actress Bridget Moynahan gave birth to a boy in Los Angeles, Moynahan’s publicist said. Brady and Moynahan ended their three-year relationship late last year. He is now dating supermodel Gisele Bundchen.

Willie snags another

A great summer of Giants milestones just got a bit better. Legendary center fielder Willie Mays, who was honored at this year’s All-Star Game at AT&T Park, was voted the top defensive outfielder on Rawlings’ all-time Gold Glove team. Mays’ most famous catch came in the 1954 World Series — three years before Gold Gloves began to be awarded — when he made an over-the-shoulder snag on a drive to deep center. Mays received 23 percent of the votes and is joined in the outfield by Roberto Clemente (21 percent) and Ken Griffey Jr. (9 percent). Third baseman Brooks Robinson led all vote-getters in the celebration of 50 years of Gold Gloves. Others honored are catcher Johnny Bench, first baseman Wes Parker, second baseman Joe Morgan, shortstop Ozzie Smith and pitcher Greg Maddux.
