Hazing, New York Yankees-style

Yankees Rookie Hazing
NEW YORK -- There was a little levity in the Yankees' clubhouse on Sunday evening.

Following a time-honored tradition, Bombers veterans made the rookies dress up as music artists and dance around the clubhouse.

The veterans, led by Joba Chamberlain, forced Yankees rookies to dress up as the following stars: Preston Claiborne (as Billy Ray Cyrus), Cesar Cabral (as Rick James), interpreter Jiwon Bang (as Psy), Brett Marshall (as Yoo Jae-Seok, one of the dancers in Psy's "Gangnam Style" video), David Adams (as Vanilla Ice) and J.R. Murphy (as Justin Bieber).

The rookies posed for pictures, and Marshall and Bang briefly performed Psy's "Gangnam Style" in the clubhouse.
