Marlins make rookies wear speedos, dress as water polo team for hazing (Pictures)
And the rookie hazing continues. Some rookies get off easy and are forced to dress in Star Wars gear while others have to wear something a little more, shall we say, snug. As you can see from the photo above that Giancarlo Stanton shared on his Twitter account, the Marlins rookies had to wear speedos and dress as the U.S. men’s water polo team on Thursday — the day before they began a series in New York with the Mets. What’s worse is they had to parade through Times Square wearing the grape-smugglers. Here’s another shot:
Personally, I feel that the blue sneakers are an outstanding touch. Really ties everything together. The Olympic theme has been popular this season as we saw when the Nationals dressed their rookies in leotards a couple of weeks ago. Don’t worry, Mike Trout — everyone still knows you got it the worst.
