David Price SP TB Feb 20 '13
David Price told FOX Sports' Jon Paul Morosi that he wouldn't sign a long-term deal with the Yankees because of their facial hair policy.
"I wouldn't stay there very long then," said Price, when informed that he would have to shave his beard if traded to the Yankees. "I wouldn't sign a long-term deal there. Those rules, that's old-school baseball. I was born in '85. That's not for me. That's not something I want to be a part of." We're guessing he would likely change his tune if the Yankees had the biggest offer on the table. It doesn't matter much now, anyway, as Price will not be a free agent until after the 2015 season. But it's an amusing tidbit to file away.
