Dave Martinez Brings Camels to Nats Camp on “Hump Day” While Blasting Black Eyed Peas’ “My Humps”

Baseball Is Fun

New Washington Nationals Manager Dave Martinez, was previously the long-time right-hand man/lieutenant/bench coach for Cubs Manager Joe Maddon.

So when I heard from a friend that Martinez may have brought real life camels to Spring Training on Hump Day … while blasting “My Humps” I didn’t doubt it for a single second:

If you’re a Cubs fan, you’ll know that this sort of shenanigan is par for the course at Cubs camp (or even during the year). At one point or another the last three seasons, Joe has brought in a Mime, a magician, a petting zoo, and much, much more.

Loosening the guys up and having some fun is his M.O. and it looks like it rubbed off on Martinez.
