JUPITER, Fla. (AP) - The Miami Marlins are hoping a new policy on beards doesn't become too hairy.
Manager Mike Redmond says the team will let players grow beards this year, but wants them to be neat and trim.
Marlins newcomer Jarrod Saltalamacchia was among Boston's bearded bunch last season, a scraggly group that helped the Red Sox win the World Series.
Saltalamacchia says he discussed beards with owner Jeffrey Loria and president of baseball operations Mike Hill before signing with the Marlins in the offseason.
The catcher says he's a believer in rules and that they need to be followed.
