Mississippi State and Omaha-bound Pitcher Trevor Fitts (he’s got a ‘stache in his pic) wanted to grow a beard but MSU’s Coach John Cohen has never allowed them. So he made a Powerpoint to argue his case that beards would carry State to Omaha.
Fitts argued valiantly and won. They’ll see Oregon State in Omaha this weekend.
“…a pitcher can rub his beard and get a slight moisture…to get more movement”
“Ozzie Smith had a beard.”
“…the mustache can come off as creepy.”
