‘Baby Bombers’ Take Flight: Rookies Wear Yankees One-sies On Plane

Young Players In Good Spirits, Take Part In Ritual Following Loss To Tampa Bay On Thursday Night

ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. (CBSNewYork/AP) — A baseball ritual lightened the mood in the New York Yankees’ clubhouse after a tough defeat.

Rookies were given Yankees’ one-sie pajamas to wear for the flight to Toronto after a 2-0 loss to Tampa Bay Thursday night, part of a “Baby Bombers” theme.

Gary Sanchez, Mason Williams, Luis Cessa, Tyler Austin and Richard Bleier were among those modeling the attire for a group photo with manager Joe Girardi. Infielder Ronald Torreyes sported a baby bonnet.

A number of coaches and teammates were all smiles and laughing when taking cellphone photos just before the team left Tropicana Field for the airport.

Teams through the majors have similar activities during the final month of the season.
