Hair Bear Bunch

I have pics but they’re buried in boxes best left undisturbed, but my high school baseball teams from ’72-75 (hey Merle, you out there?) had the longest hair ever. EVERYONE on the team had serious flow and some of us had CRAZY long hair (I hadn’t discovered conditioner yet) – we looked like a very young, very large rock band.

I remember we played some team from out in the sticks in a tournament – probably my senior year – and these farmers were yelling and screaming at us about it until we kicked their red-necked asses back to the rutted dirt roads from whence they came. Man, that was satisfying.

So all this talk about Johnny Damon’s hair is piffle – he looks like a military man compared to our team.

Check out ESPN’s tribute to baseball’s all-hair, all-time team, which only includes the majors, or course. Otherwise, we would rule!

I love this caption for Ross Grimsley: “Ahh, baseball in the early ’80s: cocaine, bad uniforms and the white-man ‘fro.”
