While you likely heard about Todd Frazier of the Cincinnati Reds saving a man's life and saw this amazing catch by an Ohio pitcher, there are a few quirky things that happened in baseball this week you may have missed.
I present to you four interesting events from this week in baseball you might just find entertaining.
1. One fan got lucky on Wednesday when he caught Carlos Quentin's third inning home run, and then Darwin Barney's walk-off home run.

Many of Brett's 12,000-plus followers helped find his dog after he posted about its disappearance on Twitter.
4. Nyjer Morgan has set a new MLB record.
