Nick Ciuffo is so excited to play baseball, his ears are wiggling

The Rays selected catcher Nick Ciuffo in the first round of the 2013 MLB Draft, and we think he'll fit nicely into a clubhouse that regularly features penguins, magicians and themed road trips.

You see, Ciuffo has wondefully talented ears -- ears that can wiggle on command. While the need for such a skill might not be readily apparent to us baseball-civilians, it's a good bet that Rays skipper Joe Maddon will figure out some sort of use for them.

At the very least, he'll be able to bust out some pretty unique moves when Maddon brings DJ Fresh back to the clubhouse.
