    For what it’s worth, this guy really needs to keep the beard. Else he risks being asked to stand over there waiting to run the bases with all the other kids after the game ends…

    As an employee of TCU and a fan of TCU baseball (season tickets arrived this week – woohoo), this thread makes me sad. Or the opposite of the happy Purke photos. Sigh.
