Fans of the Blue Jays have long thought that Jose Bautista’s extremely full beard has had magic powers. Now, we know that’s true.

In an interview with the Toronto Sun, Bautista said that if it weren’t for his beard, he’d be a different player.

“Finally, somebody asked me the million dollar question,” Bautista said. “My beard is the source of all my power.

“That’s why I don’t shave that often, if you’ve noticed. We’re telling the world now, so hopefully no barber takes advantage of me and cuts my beard completely off. Fingers crossed.”

Well, let’s see. Bautista didn’t have a beard with the Pirates and Orioles. He grew one with the Blue Jays, and became an All-Star. He may be on to something.

Another win for beards.
