Former Philadelphia Phillies draftee, catcher Johnny Estrada, was arrested Sunday in Panama City Beach, Florida, for battery after shoving an umpire over a disagreement about the umpire's call during the game he was coaching, according to WJHG.
Estrada was drafted by the Phillies in 1997 and spent parts of five seasons in the Phillies organization, including playing 99 games with the club during the 2001 and 2002 seasons combined. He was traded to the Atlanta Braves for Kevin Millwood and he finished his career in 2008 with 612 games play at the Major League level.
Estrada had a run-in with an umpire during his time in the Majors in 2005 while a member of the Braves when he bumped umpire Doug Eddings. He was suspended three games and fined an undisclosed amount for the incident.
Chase Utley has always had a flair for the dramatic.
And not just with his bat or hustle, but also with his glove.
Who can forget this clutch, heads-up play?
At 38 years old, Utley still throws around his body like he's 24 and in his rookie season. The former Phillie showed his signature full-out extension in a huge moment Wednesday night.
Pitching in the eighth inning against the Pirates, Dodgers starter Rich Hill had not allowed a runner to reach base. That looked like it was going to change when Josh Bell laced a liner destined to drop in right field. Utley then stunned everyone at PNC Park by preserving the perfect game bid with a jaw-dropping diving catch.
Jeffrey Clayton Riegel was a wonderful husband, uncle, brother, and son. He was also a Philadelphia Eagles fan with a pretty good sense of humor.
At least according to his obituary.
Mr. Riegel died on Aug. 18, 2017, at 56 but it appears he had enough time to have some fun on his way out.
His obituary reads relatively standard on the Wimberg Funeral Home website, naming all of the family he leaves behind as well as mentioning some of his favorite greetings for different people and some of his nicknames — some people called him "Toad."
