With the annual tradition of rookie hazing, the Cleveland Indians young players were forced to dress as cheerleaders before their road tip.
With the Major League Baseball season almost over and tons of young players called up for expanded rosters, now is a perfect time for veteran players to begin rookie hazing. Rookie hazing has long been a tradition in professional sports, and when done harmlessly and with some fun mixed in, it can be one of the funniest things in sports.
Whether it’s making players wear a little kids backpack, getting coffee in their full uniform, dancing before the team or dressing in an embarrassing costume, there is always something going on in the locker room in September.
Before the Cleveland Indians headed out for one of their last couple of road trips before the end of the season, the team decided that their young players should dress as cheerleaders in full uniform.
Francisco Lindor, Giovanny Urshela, Austin Adams and Cody Anderson were the unlucky participants of this year’s annual prank. Lindor though, was a great sport and absolutely took great pride in doing his part and following through with the hazing.
Perhaps Lindor’s message is the greatest of all. It’s better to just join in with the laughing and have a good time than worrying about getting hazed. It ends much quicker that way.
