Bryce Harper, Nationals Teammates Forced to Dress in Leotards as Part of Rookie Hazing (Photos)

When people say Bryce Harper has nice legs, they usually mean he can run very fast.

Harper is, after all, one of those multi-tool players — but one of those tools is not looking good in spandex.

Harper and his fellow Washington Nationals rookie teammates got a chance to answer the age-old question of how professional baseball players look in leotards over the weekend. The younger players were decked out in the form-fitting red suits and complementary faux Olympic medals as part of a hazing stunt foisted on them by their older teammates — an annual occasion for the team. (Last year, the rookies dressed like Smurfs.)

Pitcher Gio Gonzalez was kind enough to take some photos of the kids in their gymnastics wear, with Harper still finding a way to look somewhat like Rambo even while wearing a leotard. The team apparently then hopped aboard a train with the outfits still on.
