A team full of Ken Rosenthals?

It's not every day when an entire team of professional athletes dresses up to look like you. But that's exactly happened this week, when Major League Baseball's Tampa Bay Rays dressed up to look like DP alum Ken Rosenthal '84.

This past Thursday, when the Rays traveled to Boston for a series against the Red Sox, the entire team dressed as nerds, donning suspenders, glasses and bow ties. The bow ties were a tribute to Rosenthal, a sideline reporter for Major League Baseball broadcasts on Fox. Rosenthal sports a bow tie on each broadcast for the charity bowtiecause.org.

"I am totally cool with all of this," Rosenthal, a former DP sports editor, told the Tampa Bay Times. "I'm really flattered. Honored is not too strong a word."

The Rays will make a donation of $3,000 to various charities as a result of the stunt.
