We noted this briefly on Sunday, but here are 16 members of the Washington Nationals dressed up as Smurfs, from the popular TV show. Papa Smurf was played by Stephen Strasburg and Smurfette was played by Wilson Ramos. Adam Kilgore of the Washington Post provides more details.
Any player who had never had to dress up like this was required to go Smurf. That meant 16 players, including Collin Balester, Corey Brown, Danny Espinosa, Steve Lombardozzi, Chris Marrero, Yunesky Maya, Tom Millone, Brad Peacock, Wilson Ramos, Henry Rodriguez, Atahualpa Severino, Craig Stammen, Drew Storen, Stephen Strasburg, Jordan Zimmermann, Ryan Matthues, and trainer John Hsu.
A number of photos of the whole thing hit Twitter. Here they are.
