The selfie trend has not circumvented the sports world. Instead like most cultural phenomenons it has been embraced and enhanced by athletes and fans.

Being the social media mavens that they are, pros (and their followers) have posted some extremely memorable images to Twitter and Instagram.

Some, like David Ortiz's photo with President Barack Obama, were the source of significant controversy. Others, like Fox Sports reporter Kelly Nash's Fenway Park picture, are notable because of what's going on in the background.

Here are some of the more memorable selfies from the past year.
