During a 7-0 baseball game, sometimes you'll see the players start to have a little fun on the field, and veteran starting pitcher Bartolo Colon definitely had some fun with this one in 2015.

One of the ageless wonders of the MLB, Colon has made history and headlines too many times to count. This wasn't exactly record-breaking, but it was hilariously impressive.

The Miami Marlins have already been embarrassed enough by their play over the last decade, it doesn't help when rival players are doing trick-throws in the midst of a shutout. I'm sure Justin Bour and the rest of his teammates weren't happy about this one.

For New York Mets fans though, it was another instance where Bartolo did something no one would have ever expected. That sort of entertainment is good for the sport, and if Colon never pitches another game, he will be sorely missed.
