If you’re an MLB fan, you’ll probably be familiar with Jose Bautista. The 35 year-old Toronto Blue Jays’ All-Star right fielder has 288 career home runs, and is famous for his three-run homer against the Texas Rangers in the 2015 playoffs that gave Toronto a 6-3 lead in the game, and ended up sending them to the American League Championship Series.
“Finally, somebody asked me the million dollar question. My beard is the source of all my power,” he said.
“That’s why I don’t shave that often, if you’ve noticed. We’re telling the world now, so hopefully no barber takes advantage of me and cuts my beard completely off. Fingers crossed.”
So Blue Jays fans, it looks like you’re in luck this season – as long as Bautista keeps his beard, you guys are probably headed to the playoffs. Unless an angry Rangers fan gets to him with a beard trimmer first.
