Here's your early front-runner for 2013's best baseball-themed hair

This is what happens when a St. Patrick's Day tradition gets carried over to baseball games at Busch Stadium.

Ryan Troske isn't on Ron Swanson's level with his beard just yet, but he was making a very colorful statement Friday in St. Louis.

"It's just for fun, so why not?" Troske said with a grin.

Good luck with those ballpark nachos, broseph.
