Washington Nationals outfielder Jayson Werth has one of the most recognizable beards in sports. If he ever signed a contract with the New York Yankees and had to shave, the amount of people who are able to identify Werth would probably decrease by at least 75%. That’s why the at-bat music he has been using during the Nats’ opening series of the year against the Miami Marlins is priceless.
As you can see from the video above that The Nats Enquirer shared with us, Werth strolled to the plate with Warren Zevon’s “Werewolves in London” blaring in the background on Wednesday. Dan Steinberg of DC Sports Bog pointed out that the music even led to some howling among Nationals fans on Opening Day.

Werth has quickly become a fan favorite in the nation’s capital between people dressing exactly like him, sports analysts wearing fake beards and cupcakes being baked in his honor. Without the beard, I’m just not convinced that would be the case.Google+
