And just like that, Jayson Werth is a celebrity in the nation’s capital. Earlier today we showed you this fantastic cupcake that was designed in Werth’s honor on Thursday night. As you can see from the photo above that Lauren DeMarco of Fox 5 in Washington, D.C. tweeted, local bakers weren’t the only ones who caught Werth fever after his big walk-off homer in Game 4 against the St. Louis Cardinals, tying the NLDS at two games a piece.
The Fox 5 crew got ready for Game 5 on Friday by breaking out some big grizzly beards and going about their business. They weren’t the only ones to pull the stunt on live television, as David Wells paid homage to Werth’s hair on Thursday night. Via Big League Stew:
