Happy Pi Day from MLB teams!

Today is Pi Day (3/14). What do baseball teams have to say about that?

Happy Pi Day! If you are not familiar with this fantastic holiday, it is observed on March 14, or 3/14, to celebrate the number pi, or 3.14 (and change). People usually celebrate Pi Day by ... well, by going to work, probably, because it's Friday. But they may also make math jokes and/or enjoy pies or other round-shaped foods.

Happy Pi Day, everyone!
