Los Angeles outfielder Joc Pederson is quickly climbing up the charts of all-time rookie greats to don the Dodger blue. But, on Friday night at Chavez Ravine, it was a different sort of chart-topper that had the young slugger laughing his way around the bases.

Many Latino members of the Dodgers including Adrian Gonzalez and Juan Uribe are no strangers to rookie hazing. Last season they made Pederson go on a coffee run in full uniform as part of his "rookie duties," doesn't sound so bad? It was a coffee run for over 40 people! So on Friday, the Latino veterans decided to have a little more fun with their 23-year-old center fielder.

Instead of his usual hip-hop music featuring the likes of Yung Joc, Drake and Snoop Dogg to serenade the stadium when he walks up to the plate, Pederson's walk up music was replaced with boy-band classics like One Direction, Hanson and New Kids on the Block.

Pederson came up to the plate in the second inning with the bases loaded and Hanson's "MMMBop" playing throughout Dodger stadium. He literally was laughing so hard as he stepped into the batter's box he nearly called time out to regain his composure. Turns out, laughter really is the best medicine as Pederson swung at the first pitch he saw from Rubby De La Rosa and hit it 451 feet into the right field pavilion for his first ever career grand slam.

"I said to the catcher and umpire, 'We've got some jokesters messing around tonight," chuckled Pederson. "I was laughing going up to the plate, the next thing I know the pitch is there. I swung and then kind of blacked out to be honest."

Pederson crushed the pitch and with it became the second Dodger this season to hit three homers in three consecutive games. The grand slam was the longest home run hit by a Dodger player since the summer of 2012. Justin Turner and Andre Ethier also hit bombs for Los Angeles as they defeated the Arizona Diamondbacks 8-0 to extend their lead in the NL West to three games over the Colorado Rockies.
