As the Yanks left Seattle to head down to Southern California, the gang from Gotham City joined them. As part of the annual rookie hazing, the veterans dressed up the rookies and a few new staff members as characters from the live-action TV version of Batman. Above, left to right, Anthony Flynn, the video coordinator, drew the Robin shorts, Mark Melancon is the Dark Knight, the massage therapist Lew Potter is the Penguin, Ramiro Peña donned the Catwoman outfit and Michael Dunn plays the Riddler. Mark Feinsand spoke with the veterans about the ritual, and Zell’s Pinstripe Blog has a collection of photos from the clubhouse.
