Great moments in hazing: Bryce Harper is McKayla Maroney


Ah, rookie hazing.

Via Chase Hughes of, here are two photos of Bryce Harper and his fellow Nationals rookies dressed up like the United States women’s Olympic gymnastics team to begin a road trip:


I’m going to take a wild guess and say that McKayla Maroney is not impressed.

The Milwaukee Brewers perform “The Sandlot”

A lot of teams do funny promo videos during spring training. The Seattle Mariners have led the league in this category for years now, with their marketing and p.r. folks producing and a lot of game and sometimes hammy players starring in some excellent clips. They’re doing them again this year, if you’re curious.

The Milwaukee Brewers have hopped on the humor train in 2018, and their latest entry in this category of commercials is excellent. It’s their riff on “The Sandlot.”

The biggest difference: Smalls really could kill you in this one. Brett Phillips is a lot more jacked than the kid who played Scotty in the original was.

The Beast, however, is just as terrifying now as he was in 1993.
