Last February, Jayson Werth’s beard won picture day.
This year, he had some frizzy competition.
“They got me,” Werth said of bearded teammates Adam LaRoche and Ryan Mattheus. “I trimmed up last week. I had no idea. Usually it’s a no-contest so I kind of gave up on it. I guess I came in third.”
And yet, when the bright lights came on, Werth undoubtedly recorded the month’s most memorable picture day appearance for the second year in a row.
This is no trifling honor, either. Remember, you’ll see these photos show up in automated spots on web sites throughout the season. So you better learn to appreciate these particular images of Werth and friends.
