Happy Pi Day - In the Face!

Today is an epic once-in-a-century kind of day for the mathematically inclined.  It is Pi Day (π) and folks are celebrating in all kinds of different ways.  NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory has created a math challenge that boggles the mind.  Check that out here.  The World Science Festival has their own quiz to check out (here).  The South by Southwest festival in Austin, Texas gave away free mini-pies to attendees.  And here's a fun Pi Day anthem to dance too.

As for this blog, I thought I would celebrate the occasion by creating some fantasy Baseball cards of some Dodger players getting a pie in the face.


At the very top, Scott Van Slyke took a shaving cream pie in the face for hitting a game winning 3-run home run in a late May 2012 game against the Cardinals.  (Photo grabbed from a video capture seen at Think Blue LA).

AJ Ellis got a pie for his walk-off walk on May 18, 2012 (pic via Jon SooHoo/LA Dodgers 2012).  Justin Sellers received a celebratory pie after hitting his first career home run in August 2011 against Jordan Lyles of the Astros (pic taken by Stephen Dunn of Getty via Sons of Steve Garvey). 

The Dee Gordon's pie was courtesy of Matt Kemp (via @Dodgers on twitter) after a walk-off hit in extra innings.  Nate Eovaldi earned his pie for winning his very first Major League game against the Diamondbacks on August 6, 2011 (Getty Images photo).
