Donning a fake mustache and ball cap, Epstein tried to disguise his identity but was unsuccessful as multiple people recognized the 42-year-old...

Top Play (WPA) What a night for Jonathan VIllar: He missed the cycle by a double, and was the catalyst for the Brewers huge first inning with his bomb to left center field to tie the game at 1 (.102). Villar’s home run...

That year, a combination of Vince Coleman, Harold Reynolds, and Willie Wilson tested the peripheral vision of pitchers and catchers league-wide....
