Free-agent reliever Brian Wilson had a chance to be signed by the New York Yankees, but that opportunity went away as soon as Wilson made it clear that he wouldn't shave his signature beard.
Per Mark Feinsand of the New York Daily News:
Brian Wilson's agent told Brian Cashman that Wilson won't shave his beard. "Cross him off the list," Cashman said.— Mark Feinsand (@FeinsandNYDN) November 13, 2013
Hat tip to Sports Illustrated's Extra Mustard for the find.
