Rookie hazing is a time-honored tradition in any sport. Before Monday night's game against the Rays in Tampa Bay, the rookies turned back the clock and dressed as 1980s musicians.

In case you can't recognize the disguises, Andrew Brackman and Dellin Betances donned dreadlocks and bandanas as Milli Vanilli. George Kontos was George Michael. Austin Romine drew the short straw as Madonna (there's an Alex Rodriguez joke in there, but you can make it yourself). Jesus Montero traded in his catching gear for the baggy pants as MC Hammer. Brandon Laird got off easy dressing up as Slash from Guns N' Roses.

In 2009, the Yanks had their rookies dress as superheroes. Who could forget Joba Chamberlain as the Cowardly Lion from "The Wizard of Oz" in 2007?
