When benches clear, an unwritten rule says that the no-names must protect the stars. You don't want to lose your starting centerfielder in a rugby scrum on pitchers mound.Along those lines, heros sometimes are made.

Roenicke ejected, Brewers fall to Diamondbacks

Allow us to share with you some of the best, and by "best" we clearly mean "worst," from this year's stock of photos.
