SAN FRANCISCO (AP) - This is going to be a very hairy World Series.

Giants outfielder Hunter Pence is looking seriously scraggly. Same goes for teammate Sergio Romo, whose facial fuzz has its own Twitter account. Tigers slugger Prince Fielder goes for a double - dreadlocks and an overgrown beard.

And not to forget injured San Francisco closer Brian Wilson. His dyed, jet-black thicket inspired a "Fear the Beard" campaign in the Bay Area and beyond.

Players say superstition, busy schedule and hectic cross-country travel are among the reasons for ditching the razor.
