Bryan Price grew a mustache at Homer Bailey's request after his no-hitter

Reds pitching coach Bryan Price needs to work on his long-term memory.

Price promised any of the pitchers on his staff last Spring Training that if he pitched a no-hitter, Price would grow out a mustache. When Homer Bailey threw a no-no against the Pirates on Sept. 28, the promise was long forgotten.

But Bailey didn't forget. Price says that he wasn't even able to make it off the field that day before Bailey reminded him that he needed to grow out some facial hair.

Price was a man of his word and kept his mustache for two weeks until after Bailey pitched in the NLDS against the Giants.

When the game ended, however, Price could not have shaved off the 'stache any faster.
