NYT: It is not uncommon for entire teams to grow beards together. Hockey players often grow playoff beards and vow not to shave until they win the Stanley Cup. The 2013 Boston Red Sox grew beards in solidarity, tugged on them for good luck, and won the World Series. The Yankees, of course, bar their players from having beards. The 2015 Mets are a sign of the times; their beards seem boundless.
