Any baby born in the Syracuse area this weekend is going to be an Orange fan from the moment they enter the world.

Both Syracuse's men's (Saturday) and women's (Sunday) basketball teams are participating in their respective Final Fours this weekend. To commemorate the occasion, St. Joseph's Hospital Health Center is dressing newborns in Orange gear.

Because sports.

Hospitals have done this stuff before, of course. The Ohio State University Wexner Medical Center gave newborns "Beat Alabama" and "One Down, One to Go" blankets before and after the Buckeyes beat the Alabama Crimson Tide in the 2015 College Football Playoff semifinals.

Ohio State went on to win the national championship, so Syracuse has to be hoping this sort of thing brings good luck.
