Sticking with the theme of baseball hazing today, we turn to baseball’s ultimate “mouthy pledge.” You know the one, the guy who you know is going to be a mainstay of your house for the next four or so years and unfortunately he knows it too. You try to haze him into submission but the little bastard goes and wins you an intramural championship and then slams the president of a top tier sorority and all you can do is sit there and shake your head.
A few weeks ago the Washington Nationals tried their best to shame their mouthy pledge, Bryce Harper. Harper and the rest of his rookie class were forced to dress up like the Gold Medal winning U.S. Gymnastics team because apparently there’s a leotard theme with this year’s MLB hazing. Whatever, it works. Below are some photos tweeted out by Nationals starting pitcher Gio Gonzalez.
And of course Bryce Harper, being the mouthy pledge that he is, totally owns the hazing. Those fuckin’ kids.
