Braves dress up as boy bands, earn approval of original member

The Atlanta Braves’ singing competition might be the highlight of spring training.

Following a 10-6 loss to the Detroit Tigers, various Braves players outfitted themselves as boy bands and pop icons like NSYNC, Backstreet Boys, T-Pain and Vanilla Ice. The following group, featuring Matt Wisler & Co. as Justin Timberlake & Co. — albeit with no strings attached — even earned the admiration of original NSYNC member Lance Bass:


The Backstreet Boys featuring top prospects Sean Newcomb and Mallex Smith? Why not?

Dansby Swanson as T-Pain? Sure.

The alleged winners of the competition, at least according to pitching prospect Tyrell Jenkins, went the timeless standby for these types of showdowns: Vanilla Ice.
