Athletics’ Mike Fiers, now clean shaven, reveals story behind bizarre beard | Sporting News

Fiers said the creation of the beard was something fun that he and his teammates came up with and it was mainly sported to create fun morale in the clubhouse.

“We were just looking up fun things to do because I was thinking about shaving my beard and starting fresh,” Fiers said. “But we were thinking about something funny to do and we were searching on Google for funny beards and that was one of them that came up.”
