We may not be able to throw 90 mph, but at least we can take solace in the fact that Major League Baseball players – like ourselves – are capable of being arrested and having their mugshots taken. Just like regular, everyday non-athletes, ballplayers have been booked for drug possession, drunk driving, and my personal favorite, sexual assault. Thanks to mugshots, we can bask in the misfortune and mistakes of some of our heroes, all the while feeling a sort of kinship with the athletes that screw up just like us. Or maybe it’s just that for whatever reason, we like looking at really bad pictures of people we recognize. Either way, enjoy this gallery of MLB mugshots.
