What would Babe Ruth think?

I always thought the Chicago Cubs were the gay-friendliest baseball team in the Major Leagues… but I have a feeling that none of the current roster of Cubs would have done this…

Yankees in Wizard of Oz Costumes

Apparently the New York Yankees have a tradition where they dress up their rookies in costumes as part of a “hazing” ritual.  This year they chose Wizard of Oz costumes.  I’ve been a baseball fan for years, but I’ve never known about this tradition until I found these pictures today. 

Of course, I’m not saying the Yankees are gay… or gay-friendly… and I’m not saying they’re NOT either.  But seeing a baseball player dressed as Dorothy– well, that just makes me giggle a little bit.
