Taking a page out of the Yankees’ playbook, the Reds will enact a facial hair policy

Feb 14, 2014, 8:35 PM EDT

The Yankees are well-known around the league for their rather stringent policies on grooming. Johnny Damon and Kevin Youkilis are just two of baseball’s cavemen who had to clean themselves up after signing with the Yankees. Not everyone is a fan. Rays starter David Price said last year he wouldn’t sign a long-term deal with the Yankees because of the late George Steinbrenner’s rules on facial hair.

New Reds manager Bryan Price, on the other hand, likes the idea. Jamie Ramsey, the Assistant Director of Media Relations for the Reds, tweeted this earlier today:

Ramsey added that he believes the new policy isn’t meant to be hard on the players; rather, it is Price wanting to construct a team-first atmosphere.

    While I do appreciate the Reds ruffling the Cards feathers from time to time ( they are more dependable than the Cubs Pirates and Brewers. After reading this article,
    I guess
    the Reds
    just don’t
    want to win.

    How dare those in the upper ranks (i.e…THOSE THAT SIGN THE PAYCHECKS) have a uniform policy!
    Why…why…it’s discrimination I tell you. It’s draconian. It’s…it’s…incredibly barbaric.
    What’s next? Employees being required to wear uniforms? RAGE!
