So what better way to scratch the pitching itch than to crash some kids' pick-up baseball game and throw heat by the overmatched youngsters.

That's exactly what the former A's pitcher did this week, and he posted videos on his Instagram feed.

But Big Sexy wasn't done. The very next day, Colon crashed another pick-up game.

Can a major league team please sign Bartolo? He's a national treasure, and we deserve to watch him pitch for another 15 years.
