The Pirates are in all likelihood heading to the playoffs, and the team seems to be enjoying the final stretch of its successful season quite a bit, as evidenced by the clubhouse being filled with superheroes on Sunday.

Highlights include Francisco Cervelli’s Superman getup, complete with heavily styled hair curl, Elias Diaz with a slightly off-center Bane mask,  and Aramis Ramirz as Donatello of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles.

Luckily, Pittsburgh defeated the Dodgers 4–3 on Sunday, as it would have felt pretty silly putting on those costumes and getting on an airplane after a loss.

Between the travel costumes, and A.J. Burentt’s Dark Knight-inspired return earlier this month, the Pirates are turning into the preffered MLB team of comic book heroes.
