Dane De La Rosa has the sparkliest backpack in all of baseball

Spotted in Kansas City (and, assuming clear weather conditions, probably visible to anyone within a 10-mile radius of Kauffman Stadium): this glorious backpack, on the shoulders of Angels reliever Dane De La Rosa on Friday night.

The unusual fashion statement is almost certainly a light-hearted hazing ritual for the newly minted Angel, but we'd like to think the pitcher is simply expressing his own, uniquely blingy sense of style.
