The Astros’ rookies skimpy superhero outfits are awfully embarrassing

Monday September 28th, 2015

If you thought the outfits Mets rookies were forced to wear were embarrassing, just wait until you see what Carlos Correa and Lance McCullers of the Astros wore. 

The Mets’ newcomers wore tight underwear, but at least they got to wear shirts. Correa and McCullers were a lot less modest.

Catcher Hank Conger posted a group shot where you can see that some guys went with similarly revealing outfits, while others kept it family-friendly.

Perhaps the best costume was Matt Duffy’s, who dressed up MLB’s other Matt Duffy (the Giants infielder). 

It sure seems like everyone enjoyed seeing the rookies debase themselves.
