Oakland A's outfielder Josh Reddick raised the bar for whipped cream pieings last season when he dressed up in a Spider-Man (a.k.a. "Pie-der Man") costume and smashed Coco Crisp after a 13th-inning walk-off sacrifice fly. It's one of baseball's entertaining, delicious traditions. Tastes like victory!
We look forward to more major leaguers getting creative like Reddick (and creamed like Crisp) in 2013. Read on for different stylistic approaches to the art of pie smashing.
