It’s dress up time

You see, when you’re a rookie in MLB there is a certain hazing process. The junior member of the bullpen is responsible for bringing out the snacks. The snacks usually reside in a Dora the Explorer backpack or something similar. But if you’re fortunate enough to be on a roster for the last roadtrip of the season, you get to wear something fancy. Curtis Granderson is kind enough to share the lineup.

Freddy Dolsi — French maid
Armando Galarraga — Cha Cha girl
Chris Lambert — Bridezilla
Clay Rapada — Female cop
Dusty Ryan — Caveman with a club
Dane Sardinha — Hercules
Jeff Larrish — She-devil
Matt Joyce — Neverland fairy

Now if only he’ll be kind enough to share photos.

By the way, Fossum isn’t a rookie, but he should be forced to dress up in something as well.

    Here’s an idea… how ’bout the Tigers dress up as a BASEBALL TEAM?

    I am so frustrated with this season.

    Don’t worry, Jim, they have the hazing/cultural stuff down, and baseball players say that is really important. Victory is sure to follow!

    Rookie dress-up day is the thought that’s kept me going ever since late August. A winning (or post-season) year is still better every time, but rookie dress-up day makes it sting a little bit less.

    The Padres already posted pictures from their dress up day.

    Why do the catchers get to dress up as macho male characters when everyone else is a female?
    Clete Thomas gets a pass because of his injury. I’ll bet he hopes next year everyone will forget to include him.

    Amanda: luckily Joyce looked like a fairy and not a Mallard. Personally I thought it was a bit too much like the Inge Peter Pan outfit.

    I’ve been known to take shots at other feathered friends 🙂
