MLB Bans Stupid Rookie Hazing Female Dress-Ups

Major League Baseball took a big step into the 21st century by banning some completely ludicrous rookie hazing practices. For some reason, veteran MLB players thought it was "fun" to dress up rookies in women's clothing (or other inappropriate garb) and force them to traipse through airports that way. Apparently, the new rule just eliminates female outfits—so vets can still humiliate rookies with other garb. This kind of stuff is disgraceful enough on college campuses—but for grown men to engage in this is just flat-out dumb. Kudos to Commissioner Rob Manfred for stepping up and addressing this issue head-on—but he should have eliminated the practice entirely.
