Ausmus: If he plays well, (Dirks) can grow (his hair) to his feet

Cousin Hit.

uee

Even though he originally came through the New York Yankees’ system, Tigers manager Brad Ausmus isn’t too concerned with his players’ appearance.

Someone asked about outfielder Andy Dirks, whose hair has grown rather long.

“I don’t care. If he plays well, he can grow it to his feet as far as I’m concerned,” Ausmus said.
Tigers’ Ausmus played at shortstop once

Ausmus recalled the Yankees’ persnickety ways.

“I came up in the Yankee organization, which is very strict compared to most organizations,” Ausmus said. “Blousing in the pants, no facial hair, hair had to be cut, collared shirts all the time, even in the minor leagues. So they did have strict policies.”

Blousing in the pants

This is a weird phrase, entirely new to me, though now via Google I kind of get it. Do the NYY require high socks with then "bloused" plantaloons?
