Bryce Harper Struts Down Catwalk vs. Nina Agdal in New Era Ad

The New Era All-Star cap is pretty sweet—so much so that supermodel Nina Agdal challenged Washington Nationals slugger Bryce Harper for his.

The two went head-to-head in some sort of math battle, a bubble-blowing showdown and even a runway walk competition. You’ll be surprised who wins that last one.

In the end, Agdal, who you probably know from the cover of Sports Illustrated’s 2014 swimsuit issue, came out on top.

Luckily for Harper, he probably gets as many as he wants from the MLB.

Jose Bautista and Adam Jones Trade Verbal Jabs After Bautista Hits Home Run

The division rivalry between the Toronto Blue Jays and Baltimore Orioles heated up a bit during the pair's matchup Tuesday night after Toronto's Jose Bautista got into a verbal battle with Adam Jones following a home run at the Rogers Centre.

A few pitches prior to Bautista's seventh-inning homer, Baltimore's Jason Garcia threw behind the Jays slugger, which clearly upset him. So as he rounded the bases, he made sure to emphasize his accomplishment with a bat flip and slow trot.

This didn't sit well with Jones, who argued with Bautista between innings, with the Toronto outfielder showing his displeasure as he took the field.

The Blue Jays went on to win, 13-6.

Angels’ Hector Santiago Fails Mightily in the Cinnamon Challenge

Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim pitcher Hector Santiago picked up a win after throwing seven innings Wednesday against the Rangers, but he suffered a big loss after the game against a worthy adversary: cinnamon. 

For those unfamiliar, the "cinnamon challenge" involves eating a spoonful of cinnamon in one minute—although it sounds easy on paper, it's extremely difficult. 

Before you go out and try this, be warned: New studies show that this challenge can be dangerous to your health.

Brewers Announce ‘Inside the Park Nachos’ with Doritos Crusting on a Stick

We've all been there beforeyou want to enjoy your nachos at a ballpark, but all the shouting, cheering and general calamity happening around your seat prevents you from being able to eat them comfortably. Luckily, the Milwaukee Brewers have thought of a solution.

The Brewers' "Inside the Park Nachos" allow you to enjoy taco meat with a crusting of Doritos, all on a stick for portability. It will be topped with cheese sauce and sour cream and served with a side of salsa, because, you know...America.

It likely pales in comparison to the Arizona Diamondbacks' Churro Dog calorie-wise, but this is more of a savory dinner entree as opposed to a dessert. You'll have to find another MLB ballpark treat to cap it off with to get the full experience.

Tommy Lasorda Sings ‘Turn Down for What’ with No Context, Is Delightful

Former MLB coach and player Tommy Lasorda released a video on his Instagram with no context given of him singing DJ Snake and Lil Jon's "Turn Down for What," and it's possibly the most wonderful rendition we've ever heard. 

Although his appreciation for Lil Jon was unbeknownst to probably everyone who has ever known him, Lasorda's high pitch and smile is a unique interpretation. We hope there's much more to come here.

Nationals Fan Decides to ‘Do Something Dumb,’ Gets World Series Champs Tattoo

The 2015 MLB season hasn't officially kicked off yet, but one fan is confident that his tattoo will be valid in October of 2015 and beyond. 

According to The Washington Post's Scott Allen, 29-year-old Pete Johnson, a lawyer in the D.C. area, opened the door to a local tattoo parlor and said, "Why don’t we do something dumb?" before getting a Washington Nationals World Series Champs 2015 tattoo in his own handwriting on top of his foot. 

This certainly isn't the first preemptive champions tattoo we've seen fans get, and it likely won't be the last. And even though Johnson was admittedly doing "something dumb," at least it's just on his foot.
