The Orioles haven't lost their sense of humor despite being 3.5 games out of the last wild card spot with only 10 games to go. On the flight to Boston, they had the rookies dress up in ridiculous costumes as part of an annual ritual.
Orioles outfielder Gerardo Parra posted a photo to his Twitter feed Friday morning with the caption: "Rookieeeee Timeeeeeeeee!!!!!!!"
Among the crazy get-ups: pitcher Tyler Wilson as the Boy Wonder; Oliver Drake (who went to the Naval Academy) in a Navy costume; and an unidentified stormtrooper. Oh, and Gumby.
Among the most curious: Who exactly is the Stay-Puft Marshmallow? Turns out it is pitcher Mike Wright.
