In Monday night’s baseball game between the Oakland A’s and Tampa Bay Rays, Outfielder Josh Reddick did something we haven’t seen in maybe… forever.
In the bottom of the 10th inning, and the game tied, Reddick extended his arms and began rubbing the beards of teammates’ Stephen Vogt and Eric Sogard.
Reddick, having grown quite a hefty beard of his own last season, knows firsthand that long facial hair follicles can translate into victories on the field.
Sure enough, later in the inning Derek Norris hit a walk-off single to beat the Rays.
Josh Reddick, you are on to something.
