Some Cosplay Rookie Hazing by the Dodgers

Even on a day when the Dodgers get walloped by the Rockies the sophomoric tradition of dressing up your rookies in the most ridiculous costumes possible continues.

And thank goodness for that!  Life is too short and the season too long to get worked up over a loss at Coors Field.  After all, these professionals have to take each game one at a time, and allowing this afternoons loss to play with your head does nobody any good.

So, I celebrate this evenings rookie hazing event by sharing the handful of photos that have already made their way to social media.  Certainly, more will show up, so when they do I'll be sure to update this post.  In the meantime, check out some of the cosplay hijinks below.

Can you name the players in the group photos directly above and below?

Yasiel Puig had to make sure Captain America had his headdress on right.

Can you guess who was Captain America?  That's right.  It's Joc Pederson.

So, who's Donatello?

Erisbel Arruebarrena is the sock puppet.

BTW, Dodger veteran reliever Jamey Wright was put incharge of this event.  I think he did a fine job.
