    NYT: Clint Frazier’s hair is spectacular. It is red. It is curly. It is voluminous. It also seems to defy gravity as much as it defies any attempt by a batting helmet to contain it.

    If Frazier, a top outfield prospect for the Yankees, played for most any other team in baseball, his hair would be embraced in all its flaming glory.

    But with the Yankees, Frazier’s hair has brought unwelcome attention. In short, the Yankees do not do big hair (or beards), under a policy set years ago by George Steinbrenner and vigorously policed by his daughter Jennifer. Now there is a guessing game over whether the team will send Frazier to the barber before sending him to the plate.

    “I think people are making my hair bigger than my game,” Frazier said. “I’m here to play baseball.” He said he was getting so irritated by persistent questions about his locks that he might just get them sheared off.

    It has nothing to do with the 50s because there is this idiotic trend among a significant number of men to shave their heads which I think is downright ugly and just plain stupidicon_razz.gificon_exclaim.gif
