Via the Miami Herald:
For the first time since Jeffrey Loria took over as owner in 2002, Marlins players will be permitted to grow and wear beards, but only as long as they're neat.
"This year we're going to let them have beards, but they have to keep them trimmed up, and the hair, too," said manager Mike Redmond. "We just don't want it to look sloppy."
|Not that kind of beard|
"You can use it as chemistry like we did last year when everyone started doing it," Salty reportedly told Loria.
|Automatic skeptical of the word "chemistry"|
A nonsense policy undone by nonsense logic. I don't know why you'd want a thick layer of hair over your face during a 90-degree day game in June, but if it makes the players happy then the Diehards approve.
