 Biographical Information
Joe Beimel is infamous for cutting his hand on glass the night before the Los Angeles Dodgers began the 2006 NLDS against the New York Mets. He was widely criticized for the lack of judgment and some believe he had been at a bar the night before.
In 2008, Beimel won a Dodgers.com internet poll asking fans which player they would like to see on a bobblehead. In reaction, Beimel described himself as an "internet god" and his bobblehead was given out to fans at Dodger Stadium on August 12th.
Joe Beimel's father Ron won the Democratic nomination for assessor of Fox Township in Elk County, Pennsylvania, in May of 2007.
