"The team policy is, facial hair is OK, but it's got to be groomed."
(Mike Rizzo, via Big League Stew, 12/6/2010)
Hey, look: Jayson Werth (in video game form) appears in the "first look" trailer for the upcoming MLB 2K11 from 2K Sports. (That's the game Brian Wilson recently promoted on the George Lopez show while dressed in a Sea Captain's outfit.) Adding a sense of realism, it appears that Nationals facial hair policy also extends to video games: the video game version of Werth has a soul patch, and not the old burly beard from his Phillies heyday.
Speaking of Werth, good stuff (especially in the comments) over at Federal Baseball Thursday on Scott Boras' thoughts about the Werth deal.
A couple more screengrabs of Werth mashing baseballs at Nationals Park in a Nats uni, and the trailer, after the jump:
