Nick Markakis’ New Look Indicates He Spent This Offseason Lost At Sea

With Spring Training on the horizon, Orioles outfielder Nick Markakis has emerged from his offseason cave or deserted island to debut a new, “fluffier” look. The usually well-groomed Markakis now has a curly fro with a pretty grizzly beard, making him look more like a 70s disco icon (or Raffi from ‘The League’) than a professional baseball player.
