MLB Team Hazes Rookies By Making Them Dress Like Rockford Peaches
Veteran baseball players think of all sorts of creative ways to haze rookies.
From forcing rookies to get coffee while in uniform to wearing a Hello Kitty backpack to the bullpen, hazing is a part of baseball. However, the Atlanta Braves hazing has a certain Rockford feel to it.
The veterans of the Braves organization devised a plan to make the young kids on the team dress like characters from A League of Their Own.
A League of Their Own came out in 1992 and starred Geena Davis, Madonna, Rosie O'Donnell and Tom Hanks.
The flick was a critical and commercial success, and is one of Rockford's most popular ties to Hollywood.
Years later, the Rockford Peaches place in pop culture remains, where the Atlanta Braves Twitter captured a hilarious photo of all the rookies dressed like characters from the movie.
They looked OK with it too. Why not, right? If the players have learned anything from A League of Their Own, they should know by now "there's no crying in baseball."
