A beard scale for baseball

Posted to Infographics  |  Tags: ,  |  Nathan Yau

There are a lot of beards and other types of facial hair in Major League Baseball. In case you’re wondering how many and at what level, the Washington Post has you covered with a breakdown.

Patches of hair with varied density represent the hairiness of each team. Click on a team to see the beard style of each player, scored on a scale of 0 to 8. A score of zero means clean shaven and an 8 means the player probably has to spend time at the end of each day picking out food bits off his face.

The Washington Nationals top the list, and the New York Yankees, the only team with a clean-cut policy has zeros across the board.

Beardiness.
