Yet Another Difference Between Baseball Players and Investment Bankers

The New York Times, with an expose about beards last week:

You can have facial hair in almost any industry these days, said Allan D. Peterkin, co-author of “The Bearded Gentleman: The Style Guide to Shaving Face,” and also a psychiatrist in Toronto. But there are a few exceptions, he said, and one of them is finance…. [B]ankers and traders are a conspicuously clean-shaven lot. In fact, I was unable to find a bearded banker to talk to me for this article.

So… one of these men is a banker. The other is not. Any guesses?

Okay, I guess neither one is a banker.
