"When Facial Hair Was as Rare as a Triple Play"

This New York Times baseball blog title was so good, we decided to use it as our own ;)

If you haven't read the Astronology or our post on facial hair in the workplace, you should: click here

We made a reference to the Yankees, and this article from the Times is a great little history of facial hair in baseball. The Yankees have had a policy under principal owner George Steinbrenner that has prohibited long hair of facial hair (besides a cleanly shaved mustache on the upper lip). Some other teams have also taken variations on it. If you incorporate a facial hair policy and meet resistance, you can tell your employee that you're just being like the Yankees!
