Felix Pie, 2010 Topps #349

Felix Pie spent parts of three seasons playing his own haphazard brand of baseball in Baltimore, and he last took the field for the Orioles in August of 2011. Though he's still just 29 years old, the ex-Cubs prospect has moved on to Korea to continue his flagging pro baseball career. As you'll see if you follow this link, he's still doing things his own way.

While playing center field for the Hanwha Eagles, Pie seems to call time out and strolls all the way to the infield to demonstratively urge pitcher Caleb Clay to throw more strikes. If you watch the video to the end, you'll also see Felix nearly collide with Hanwha's left fielder before making a deliberate basket catch and bowing with a flourish. I wonder how it feels to be big-timed by Felix Pie.
