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:
