Video: Pirates fan one-hands home run ball while holding baby

This Pittsburgh Pirates fan will go down as one of the coolest dads of the year.

D-Backs' Welington Castillo tries Beef Wellington for the first time

Welington Castillo has been showing off his power at the plate in recent weeks, something that the Diamondbacks refer to as "Beef Mode." With a name like Welington, a "beefy" nickname seems like a perfect fit. But surprisingly, Castillo has never tried the famous dish that helped breed the "Beef Mode" moniker, Beef Wellington.

Cubs catcher Wellington Castillo takes foul tip to the junk (GIF)

Your Opening Day was better than Cubs catcher Wellington Castillo’s.  He went 0 for 2 with two punchouts, caught ten innings and called the pitch that Neil Walker killed for the Pirates’ 1-0 walk-off win.  But all that paled in comparison to the foul tip he caught off the bat of Pirates third baseman Pedro Alvarez.
