Mike Aviles, T.J. House, Jason Kipnis, Cody Allen, Corey Kluber, Marc Rzepczynski, David Murphy, Bryan Shaw, Josh Tomlin and Carlos Carrasco are among the Indians players supporting mustaches. But not everyone is able to grow a mustache, so Chisenhall bought fake mustaches and passed them out to his baby-faced teammates before Friday night’s game against the Royals in Kansas City.
Those are powerful words coming from a guy who once sported this disastrous mustache look:
Accorsing to Zack Meisel of Cleveland.com, when Indians manager Terry Francona was asked about the mustache craze, he said: "Cleanliness is not mandatory. As long as they play good baseball, I’m not worried about the facial hair."
Here’s hoping the rally ‘stache is as effective for the Indians in their postseason push as Boston’s beard bonding was last season.
