Although Bryce Harper isn't necessarily superstitious, he does exhibit some superstition.
On Tuesday, slugger Bryce Harper of the Philadelphia Phillies entered the game suffering,
from a terrible 0-for-16 skid. As a result, Harper made the decision to don a new appearance,
for that day's game against the San Diego Padres; he did away with his beard.
A picture of Harper was published by MLB.com's Phillies beat writer Todd Zolecki.
Many fans found the sight of Harper's bald face to be very startling because the former NL MVP had been,
sporting the beard for at least the previous few years. That it didn't even work (or at least not yet) is the worst part.
