A.J. Pierzynski is looking for a new team as a free agent, but in the meantime he’s also raising money for charity by growing a mustache.

Every year in November the “Movember Foundation” raises funds to promote awareness for “men’s health issues” such as prostate and testicular cancer and Pierzynski is taking part by pledging not to shave for the entire month.

As someone who often goes an entire month without shaving purely out of laziness that doesn’t seem like such a big deal, but it’s nice that Pierzynski is doing his part to raise some money for charity during free agent season.

We are fortunate to have the job we have. It’s an awesome position to be in to be able to support something you believe in like this, which is huge for all males to worry about, and a good cause. Spread the wealth, as the saying goes. My buddy brought this up last year, and we’re trying to get people interested.

    I’d skip the moustache and just donate money. The last time I tried growing a moustache and goatee it came in silver. I don’t need to be reminded how old I am.

      Amen to that, man.

    So are about 50 Navy men on the warship USS Halsey while we’re deployed in support of the Global War on Terrorism, and no one writes a story about us…

      Hey, man, thanks for everything you do. If it wasn’t for the people in the Five Branches, we wouldn’t be able to sit on our ass all day and snark about trivial things like baseball. You guys rock!! And Go Navy, Beat Army!!!! (I am absolutely not above pandering, especially to Navy members, since my dad raised me right.)
