Tigers hold annual 'Rookie Dress Up Day' en route to Minnesota
Getaway day for the final road trip of the season is traditionally the day that Major League Baseball rookies get their yearly dose of hazing, forcing them to dress up — and usually as things like Disney princesses or butterflies. Tigers reliever Darin Downs posted an Instagram picture
of the Detroit group of rookies — (from left) Bruce Rondon, Bryan Holaday, Hernan Perez, Jose Alvarez, Jose Iglesias, Evan Reed, and Nick Castellanos in front — dressed up as the team left for Minnesota.
(Side note: I'm not sure if the rookies would have been forced to wear that attire had the Tigers clinched on Sunday. Also not sure what that much silk would've looked like, when drenched in champagne.)
