MLB Drops Hammer on Rookie Hazing


There’s nothing more American, in my very humble yet bias opinion, than Major League Baseball. It’s tradition and it’s life. When looking deeper into Major League Baseball you see certain other traditions and such that simply come attached to the hip with MLB. Labor Day and Independence Day baseball. Hot dogs and cracker jacks. Rookie hazing. It happens. Some may not like it, especially in this world today that is so “PC” and sensitive, but it happens nonetheless and for that reason MLB is dropping the hammer a bit on teams for it in certain instances.

The certain instances that MLB will now prohibit is the act of hazing that involved men dressing up as women. For example, there will be no more MLB players dressing up as cheerleaders, Wonder Woman or a Hooters Girl. In fact no costume or outfit can be worn that is offensive to the individual’s race, sex, nationality, age, sexual orientation, gender identity or other characteristic.

Everyone has to be sensitive to everyone else and everything these days. Agree with it or not, stuck in your ways or not, that’s just how the world is today. For better or worse. Carrying on.

  1. Unless it's the native American. No one gives a damn about them. Jk. This is stupid, but I guess sets an example for hazing in teen sports, which we'll, gets out of hand.
