We talked about the Yankees dumb grooming policy the other day and how outfield prospect Clint Frazier was likely to run afoul of it due to his luxurious red locks.
Welp, the time has come to pay the piper. Or visit the barber. Or whatever. Either way, Frazier’s tresses have been trimmed:
Clint Frazier had his hair buzzed this morning. He said that he talked to Joe Girardi and they agreed it had become a distraction.— Bryan Hoch ⚾️ (@BryanHoch) March 10, 2017
So be it. Too bad that it’s the only organization that turns such a thing into an actual choice instead of a false one.
UPDATE: The policy is still dumb, but at least they’re making lemonade out of it:
Yanks PR says they kept Clint Frazier's hair and plan to donate it an organization that creates wigs for children with cancer.— Bryan Hoch ⚾️ (@BryanHoch) March 10, 2017
