(Photos) Teammates Document Ryan Braun’s Epic Wipeout ‘Crime Scene’

In case you haven’t heard, Milwaukee Brewers left fielder Ryan Braun (a/k/a The Hebrew Hammer) took a bit of a tumble after rounding third base as he tried to leg out an inside-the-park home run during last night’s game against the St. Louis Cardinals (video here). Braun had to settle with an RBI triple on the play as once he regained his composure (and his legs, but not likely his dignity), he was tagged out. It was surely an embarrassing experience for the guy, which why it makes perfect sense for his teammates to commemorate Braun’s running gaffe courtesy of some crime scene “chalk” outlines depicting a progressive re-creation of the faceplant. Brilliant.

Photos of his Brewers mates creating their masterpiece follow below.

Hilarious. Now, I’m not up to snuff on the Milwaukee Brewers roster – although I probably should be, they are kicking some serious tail this season – so if anyone can lend a hand and identify the culprits, it would be much appreciated. But even without the identities of these wisenheimers, I can offer this thought:

Baseball players: humiliating teammates to get their kicks since the 1850s.
