Rockies fool the internet with perfect Pi Day picture

SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. — The Rockies marked Pi Day on Tuesday in the most perfect way, even if it wasn’t all that it seemed.

Pi Day falls on March 14 — or 3-14, the first three numbers of the ratio of a circle’s circumference to its diameter.

The team tweeted a photo showing players and coaches lined up along the baseline before a spring training game at Salt River Fields at Talking Stick in Scottsdale, Ariz.

They were in order of the first 30 numbers of the mathematical constant: 3.14159265358979323846264338327.

But after the photo went viral, the team admitted the picture was doctored.
