The arrival of spring training comes with a number of traditions. Each February players talk about how they’re in the best shape of their lives. There are team bonding activities. Best of all, however, is photo day. This event makes big leaguers look like elementary school kids on picture day.

We went through the catalog and picked out some of the most interesting photos, providing a caption for each. There are some highs, some lows, and some that you just have to see to believe. Give them a look and share your own captions in the comment section!

It’s the perfect photo for Judge’s parents to print out and hang up on the fridge.

Troy Tulowitzki

Someone should probably make sure Tulo didn’t strain his neck or back posing for this photo.

Giancarlo Stanton

Stanton apparently spent the winter watching WCW and got really into Sting.

CC Sabathia

Pretty sure Frazier printed this photo out and taped it to Brett Gardner’s locker.

Didi on his way to steal your girl.

Jacoby Ellsbury

Not pictured...because he’s still in Arizona and may never be seen in a Yankees uniform again.
