Bryan Price facial hair crackdown: 'No Duck Dynasty'

New manager Bryan Price is not allowing any unruly facial hair on his Cincinnati Reds players. According to Jamie Ramsey, a Reds spokesperson, "Beards and moustaches are permitted but must be tame." Ramsey wrote this on Twitter on Feb. 14, along with the quote, "No Duck Dynasty."

Talk about a strict grooming policy and shades of the New York Yankees' set in stone rules.

While some players may not like this rule -- remember Rays starter David Price who wouldn't play for the Yankees on a long term basis because of George Steinbrenner and his requirements regarding facial hair? -- others are willing to go along with this strict dictum in order to play ball.

According to Mark Townsend writing for Yahoo! Sports, the beards that are being permitted to be worn by the Reds are "to be kept within reason." That means the guys should follow good trimming practices and should not even think about growing long, shaggy hairstyles on any of their faces.

So why was such a policy put into place?

Ramsey says this matter is now in the official rule book so that Bryan Price can rule "a team-first club" in as far as the Cincinnati Reds are concerned for the 2014 season.

Unity through uniform facial hair? Go figure.
