Tampa Bay Rays Force Rookies to Dress Down and Dance to 'Call Me Maybe'

There is something so innocent yet so ridiculously hilarious in the way MLB veterans handle the hazing of their rookies. 

They just make the youth movement look ridiculous. 

With a simple bathing suit, an awful song in the background and a forced dance on the enemy's field, the Rays make us all LOL

David Price tweeted (h/t Hot Clicks) to the masses this YouTube video of the rookies being forced to look pretty and shake their tail feathers:


Yes, indeed, there will be asthma flare-ups watching athletes forced to look this ridiculous while playing at Fenway Park. 

The YouTube description tells us who those being mocked in the video are and who the man doing the tremendous back flip at the 1:08 mark is:

Matt Moore, Stephen Vogt, Brandon Gomes, Chris Archer, Dane De La Rosa, Jose Lobaton, Rich Thompson, Alex Cobb, Desmond Jennings (Did the back flip) and Jake McGee.

Apparently, the whole thing comes from the wonderful mind and camera of James Shields. Send your thanks accordingly.
