Former Phillie reportedly arrested for battery after altercation with ump while coaching

Former Philadelphia Phillies draftee, catcher Johnny Estrada, was arrested Sunday in Panama City Beach, Florida, for battery after shoving an umpire over a disagreement about the umpire's call during the game he was coaching, according to WJHG.

Estrada was drafted by the Phillies in 1997 and spent parts of five seasons in the Phillies organization, including playing 99 games with the club during the 2001 and 2002 seasons combined. He was traded to the Atlanta Braves for Kevin Millwood and he finished his career in 2008 with 612 games play at the Major League level.

Estrada had a run-in with an umpire during his time in the Majors in 2005 while a member of the Braves when he bumped umpire Doug Eddings. He was suspended three games and fined an undisclosed amount for the incident.

He was also arrested in 2013 on domestic violence charges

Nolan Patrick shows his wizardry with through-the-legs pass for goal

We've heard so much about Nolan Patrick's vision and passing ability.

Now we know why.

Patrick on Tuesday delivered the first jaw-dropping highlight of his NHL career when he slickly dropped a pass through his legs for a trailing Dale Weise, who finished the play with the Flyers' fourth second-period goal of the night (see observations).

You can watch the play in the video above … and just, wow.

Patrick, only 19 years old, does it so naturally and without even looking — at all — in Weise's direction.

Some Flyers were seen on the bench smiling in amazement of the teenager.

And it probably won't be the only time.

Joel Embiid explains the reasoning behind his wild new hairstyle

Joel Embiid said plenty with his words on Tuesday afternoon when he called the decision to have a minutes restriction in the teens to begin the season "f-----g BS."

He also sent a message with his fresh new look.

Jojo showed up to practice on the eve of the Sixers' season with a new hairstyle -- some cornrows remeniscent of the last great Sixer to captivate the city of Philadelphia.

No, not Andrew Bynum.

We're talking about Allen Iverson.

"I had the old hairstyle for a long time so I just wanted something new," Embiid said. "I know my mom won't be happy but it's only for a couple of days."

Robert Covington saw a resemblance, "Everybody was shocked. Told him he’s going to be the new AI.”

Was he inspired by somebody? Anybody?

"I just wanted something new, something crazy. I never do anything crazy, so..."

"I think it looks OK," Embiid said, always his toughest critic.
