On Sunday, any rookie on the team who hadn’t dressed up previously was required to dress up as a Smurf.
In all, 16 players donned blue body paint, tight white pants and white caps, except for pitcher Stephen Strasburg, who wore a beard and the signature red pants and cap of Papa Smurf, and catcher Wilson Ramos, who wore a white skirt over blue pants and a blond wig as Smurfette.
“This is what baseball is about,” first baseman Chris Marrero said, “being a rookie and being able to do this with my friends.”
The team played the Smurfs theme on a loop in the clubhouse while the players were getting dressed.
That mush have been nauseating.
