New York Mets manager Buck Showalter indicated that he will dye his hair if the team wins the World Series.
The New York Mets are continuing to enjoy what has been a successful season thus far. They hired Buck Showalter to be their manager, and brought in a plethora of players, such as Max Scherzer, Starling Marte, and Mark Canha, just to name a few. As of Aug. 28, they are still in first place in the NL East, and look like favorites to be in the World Series.
Prior to the team’s game against the Colorado Rockies, manager Buck Showalter spoke with the media. As MLB.com’s Anthony DiComo points out, Showalter indicated that if his team were to win the World Series, he will dye his hair.

As if winning the World Series was not an enticing enough thought for Mets fans. Now, if they are able to be the last team standing at the end of this season, they will get to see a veteran manager dye his hair.
While the Mets have the second-best record in the National League, their path to the Fall Classic is far from easy. They have to contend with their rivals in the Atlanta Braves, who won the World Series last year. The Brave are less than a handful of games behind the Mets entering their game against the St. Louis Cardinals on Sunday night.
Then, there are the Los Angeles Dodgers, who hold the best record in the entire league. Since the trade deadline, they were 19-5, and are 50 games over .500 as of this writing.
But, the Mets have shown that they are capable of going on a deep run. Not only do they have one of the top batting orders in the game, but they have, perhaps, the deepest starting rotation in baseball, led by Jacob deGrom and Max Scherzer. Oh, and they have Edwin Diaz, who has shown to be one of the best closers in the game.
If the Mets are to hoist the Commissioner’s Trophy for the first time since 1986, the fanbase may very well see Showalter dye his hair.
