It’s a cornerstone of being a rookie in any league, at any level: You’re going to have to do something embarrassing.
The Arizona Diamondbacks handled that one the last stretch of the season, as they dressed up their rookies in various costumes for the team’s flight to the Bay Area for a series with the San Francisco Giants.
The event was thoroughly documented on social media, so here’s a look at “Rookie Dress-up Day” as told by Twitter:
