Rays third baseman Evan Longoria with the help from some of his MLB buddies recreated the cover of Devo’s “Freedom of Choice” album cover for ESPN The Magazine’s Music Issue, which will hit newsstands Friday.
Bucs quarterback Josh Freeman does the same for Michael Jackson’s “Thriller.”
Released in 1980, Devo’s “Freedom of Choice,” which included “Whip It,” ushered in the New Wave Era.
Posing with Longoria are Justin Upton, Brandon Phillips, Giancarlo Stanton and Shane Victorino.
“Thriller,” released in 1982, is the best-selling album of all-time. Posing with Freeman is a tiger cub.
