The MLB baseball season is winding down, which means the end of rookie hazing. With that thought in mind, the first-year players on the Nationals should not have been too surprised when the team's veterans forced them to dress like Olympic gymnasts following an 8-0 loss to the lowly Marlins on Sunday. For outfielder Bryce Harper, it was a busy weekend. Not only did he dress up with the rest of his Nats rookies, he also became the first teenager since 1936 to hit seven triples in a season, and helped instigate a bench-clearing brawl. Your move, Mike Trout.
