It's that time of year again -- rookie hazing time. Every year in the last month of the season, teams all around baseball remove their rookies' clothes from their lockers during a get-away day game and replace them with some sort of humiliating costume.

While the Nationals were original -- giving everyone a Smurf costume and Stephen Strasburg as Papa Smurf -- other teams go by the old standby, making the rookies dress up like girls (get it, being a girl is bad and funny!). Among the totally cliched are the Angels, who had 20-year-old Mike Trout dress up like Lady Gaga.

And, because this is all about the visual, Halos Heaven poster Pattimelt has a series of photost. Then there's LA Angles Insider.com also has a full gallery available on their Facebook page, including this full-body shot if you're into that sort of thing:

I don't know that there would be any violations.  He is in a public or reasonably public place, so Trout's privacy is not being infringed in any way.  Nor is this a copyright issue, and there is no money to be made off the picture.  As I see it, there are no permissions to be asked.  (These hazing rituals have an implied aspect of publicity about them anyway - the more people see them, the better.)

to the one who post it on the website i think pattimelt deserves the credit for taking those pictures and put his/her name on the blog, is there any violations about asking permissions first?

To the author . Get over yourself. A guy dressing up as a girl for laughs means that girls are bad?????

If they dressed up as a baby in diapers (another cliche) Would that mean babies are bad????

It's obvious that you have absolutely no clue what he was saying.  Hyperbole is tough.

HAHAHA. So many great things about the game of baseball. charging the mound protecting your hitters as a pitcher and hitting the opposing messing around witht the guys and obviously rookie hazing. First time ive seen a player dress up as a chick. even while i was playing this great game and also now as a fan.

I always knew that Lady Got Junk was the ultimate tranny, but I never knew she could steal a base if she needed to?

It would have been NICE if the author of this story had contacted me about using my photograph here before it was published..   As a professional organization, shouldn't you at least request permission before using someone else's photographs???   Just because I gave permission to a friend to use my pictures on his website, it does NOT mean that I give permission to everyone to steal it...    The LEAST you could have done was contact me through either Rev. Halofan who runs the Halos Heaven website, or through my screenname there, which has my correct email address...   I am disappointed in your website..
