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:
- D-backs RF Steven Souza Jr. receives good news, MRI shows pectoral strain
- Lovullo: Souza has right pectoral strain, likely to start season on DL
- Diamondbacks RHP Matt Koch optioned to Triple-A
- D-backs’ Souza exits Cactus League game after straining right shoulder
- Diamondbacks’ Zack Greinke: My groin is pretty good
