At least they have company in numbers this year. There have been times when there were very few.

Rookie dress up day... hazing? I guess a little bit, but all of that seems pretty mild.

You can come up with statistics to prove anything. Forty percent of all people know that.

I guess I didn't realize that Oakland had that many rookies. There dress up idea is pretty good too.

It is mild agreed, but it really is old and tired, and like it or not, this example gets followed and taken to extremes in high school sports. I like frivolity a lot, bit this is pretty much just kind of lame at this point, imo. Ymmv.

that would be Tyler Robertson. And he is about the size of Jared Allen. Feel free to tell him that in person. He is a nice guy though ;)

From Post #9 Who are the two on the far left? I can identify them all (Even Mastroianni behind the Police Sign) except those guys.

EDIT: Looks like Parmelee on the far left. Second from the left? Fien?

Do the Twins still do the back pack thing? Was that just for pitchers? Trying to remember what that was all about.

There is a great slide show on espn's site (under rookie hazing) showing MLB rookies in tutus and leotards and more....and it shows many of the backpacks that rookie pitchers carry. Quite entertaining.

The one where Tosoni dressed as a flasher was also a good one.
