We learned earlier today that new Red Sox manager Bobby Valentine was scheduled to travel to the Dominican Republic this weekend to participate in David Ortiz’s charity golf tournament. Oh, and to help in the recruiting process to retain the veteran slugger. Well, according to a picture posted to Ortiz’s Twitter account, the wooing is already underway:
Astros third baseman Alex Bregman apparently wasn’t happy with his mustache on Sunday afternoon as he shaved it off in between innings during his team’s contest against the Royals. Bregman walked and later scored in the Astros’ eight-run second inning, but when he took his next plate appearance in the fourth inning, he was clean-shaven.
Bregman made a throwing error in the seventh and finished 0-for-4 with the walk on the afternoon. The Astros won 11-3.
Bregman isn’t the only player to make headlines for his facial hair recently. Nationals outfielder Bryce Harper recently shaved his signature beard. The Yankees approve of what both players have done.
