About This Quiz

Baseball has been around for a very long time, since the 18th century, to be exact. It came from England but the United States has made it their own by having the most successful league of this sport in the world. The men who play in this league are the best of the best. They can throw balls like Superman and knock them out of the park like the Hulk and run and catch them like the Flash. 

But these days, the players are being noticed for something other than their skills. They're in the spotlight for their crazy, manly, neatly-cut, wild and stylish facial hair. One may wonder why it is that all this attention is being put on these players because of hair that grows naturally on their faces. And we can't exactly answer that for you. But we can tell you that some of these beards and mustaches are badass enough to inspire us to make a quiz out of it. So here we are.

When you watch the sport, do you pay attention to more than just the home runs? Do you look at the facial hair of the players who have made history in one of America's greatest sports?
