BOSTON — Rookie dress-up days are as much a part of baseball as pine tar and sunflower seeds, but that doesn’t make them any less hilarious every time they happen.
The Red Sox had theirs after Sunday’s 2-0 win over the Baltimore Orioles, and there were quite a few characters in the clubhouse. Highlights included catcher Blake Swihart as an Army man riding a gorilla and outfielder Mookie Betts as a, well, taxi driver.
The rookies headed to the buses in their get-ups, too, as the Red Sox are going to New York to take on the Yankees in a four-game set starting Monday.
Let’s just hope their luggage doesn’t get lost along the way.
