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.
Given that baseball is a game based around a sphere, whose dimensions are based on pi, it's only natural that MLB teams would get in on the fun. Here is your Pi Day Twitter roundup:

No, no, no. Your area code is local. Pi is universal. You're doing it wrong.
Dude, that's a cake, not a pie. I don't even ... whatever.
