Being the fan of a team headed nowhere can be awfully frustrating this time of year. Especially when you look around and see the excitement in places like Kansas City, Pittsburgh and Seattle. Still, there are few better places to go than the ballpark, and even if the home team’s product isn’t up to standard, fans can always find ways to amuse and entertain themselves within the ballpark experience. For example, take the legendary fans in Philadelphia. Over the years they have built a reputation on finding creative ways to amuse themselves, often at the expense of opposing players. On Saturday night, a group of fans seated behind home plate were in especially rare, but hilarious form during the ninth inning of their game against the Atlanta Braves. Throughout the inning, as Braves closer Craig Kimbrel began his unique pitch setup and delivery, the fans behind the plate mimicked him. You can get a great workout at the park if you do the @Kimbrel46 : http://t.co/o76LPWlan4 http://t.co/YYVe57F9M4 — Cut4 (@Cut4) September 28, 2014 It’s a unique setup to be sure. In fact, it pretty much begs to be mocked, if not in a big league stadium, then in living rooms everywhere. It almost looks like an elaborate yoga pose with Kimbrel bent over and his arms and body forming a ‘T’ shape. It doesn’t look the least bit comfortable, but it continues working for Kimbrel. In Saturday’s game, he secured Atlanta’s 4-2 win with a scoreless ninth, notching his 46th save . But even with his great results, something tells us this mockery will catch on with fans beginning promptly in March of 2015, before dying out by May of 2015. That’s just how quick fads fade out these days. More MLB coverage from Yahoo Sports: – - – - – - – Mark Townsend is a writer for Big League Stew on Yahoo Sports. Have a tip?

The Milwaukee Brewers announced plans on Friday to honor retiring Major League Baseball Commissioner and former team owner Bud Selig by retiring the uniform No. 1 in a ceremony set to take place at Miller Park during the 2015 season. “We are proud to pay tribute to Commissioner Selig with this honor for all of his work on behalf of the Brewers as well as Major League Baseball,” Brewers Chairman and Principal Owner Mark Attanasio said in a statement released Friday. “The uniform number being retired in the Commissioner’s honor is significant, as the existence of the Milwaukee Brewers and Miller Park are a direct result of the Commissioner’s vision. Without his tireless efforts, neither would be a reality.” Though Selig never wore a Brewers’ uniform, he is arguably the most important figure in franchise history. He played a key role in bringing baseball back to Milwaukee in 1969, four years after the Braves left for Atlanta. He also served as the Brewers owner for 30 years before taking on the commionsser role full-time in 1998. At that point, he passed control of the Brewers to his daughter, Wendy. On Jan. 13, 2005 the Brewers were officially sold to Attanasio.
