It's rookie hazing time for the Atlanta Braves, and even though he's the opposite of a rookie, retiree-to-be Chipper Jones is joining in on the fun for some reason or another.
Jones and several Braves rookies posed for pictures in costume on their day off Thursday in Philadelphia before starting a three-game series this weekend against the Phillies.
Braves reliever Peter Moylan tweeted out the following photograph early Thursday evening:

To the best of our knowledge, here's the costume rundown:
-Luis Avilan as Basketball Player
-Cory Gearrin as Scooby Doo
-Julio Teheran as Pimp In Blue Suit
-Chipper Jones as Pimp In Animal-Print Suit
-Randall Delgado as Pimp In Orange Suit
-Tyler Pastornicky as Tinkerbell
-Andrelton Simmons as a Na'vi from "Avatar"
-Jose Constanza as Man In Lederhosen
It would seem Pastornicky got the brunt of it, as he's the only one in women's clothing. It's difficult to tell if Simmons is wearing a mask or full blue makeup, which would be two very different fates.
