No bushy bonding in Cincinnati: Reds want players to keep beard and hair in check

GOODYEAR, Ariz. - No bushy bonding in Cincinnati this season. The Reds want players to keep their beards and their locks in check.

First-year manager Bryan Price says players need to keep their hair "under control." A few of them have long hair and beards. Price says that's fine, so long as they're neat.

The Boston Red Sox made long, scraggly beards their identity last season on their way to a World Series championship. Players shaved them off after the season.

Price says he'll discuss other rules with the team's leaders when position players report next week for workouts. The Reds were known in the 1980s for their restrictive rules on facial hair. Price says he's not trying to turn back the clock to those days.
