Who wants to wrastle? Twins rookies in singlets for rookie dress-up day

Torii Hunter is social media gold. On Sunday, following the Twins' 7-1 win over the Detroit Tigers, Hunter snapped a photo of rookie players on the team wearing singlets and flexing their muscles on the tarmac at the airport.

Because where else do professional baseball players wear singlets and flex?

As Hunter notes, Sunday was dress-up day for the rookies.

Maybe the best part about the outfits is that every player is wearing a pair of fancy dress shoes and socks.

The hazing is all in fun, but it looks like the Twins' rookies – as bad as the singlets are – pale in comparison to what some other rookies around the league had to wear.
