Baseball has some pretty sweet beards. Josh Reddick, Sean Doolittle and Brian Wilson all have really great ones. But none of theirs is better than this guy's. 

Eric Brooks' Instagram bio describes him as an "avid beardsman," which certainly seems accurate. And while there's no doubting that his beard is totally awesome, is it good enough to win a world championship?

Brooks says he plans to wear his beard like that for Wednesday's game between the Nationals and Rockies. He's going to look pretty cool sitting in the stands with that thing, but it would be cooler if Jayson Werth played right field like that.
