Gothamist is glad to know that dressing up and looking foolish on purpose is a part of the Major League Baseball rookie's agenda. Apparently, rookies are supposed to dress in costume as part of their initiation. Here, New York Yankees' Hideki Matsui, left, is pimptacular and Tampa Bay's Doug Waechter, right, shows off his hot gams and shows that sports jocks are not afraid to cross dress. Picture of the Yankees' Jose Contreras and Mitchel Hernandez dressed up here.

The Yankees lost to Tampa Bay, 5-2.
