Don Mattingly was told to shave his Sideburns and mustache, but I can't remember if he retired instead.

It was the yankees whoever it was.

Or was that just a simpsons episode?

That was a simpson's episode. Mr. Burns asked him to shave his sideburns when he didn't have sideburns.

Mattingly retired because of a bad back not because of facial hair. When he first started with the Yankees he had to shave but if you look at footage of his later years with the Yankees he has the 'stache.

That really happened when Yankee manager Stump Merill wanted Mattingly to cut his long hair or be benched. The Simpsons episode "Homer At The Bat' 8F13, just pariodied it with Mr. Burns telling Mattingly to trim his sideburns, which was different.

Well he is a Hall of Famer now but when he retired he was a future Hall of Famer, the team is the Reds but its not Johnny Bench. This player never played for the Reds refusing to do so because of their no facial hair rule which they had up until the late 90s.

Correct in 1986 the Reds were the only team to offer the legendary reliever a contract but required him to shave so Fingers chose to retire instead.

It was strange taht it lasted so long in the first place, but they had Jeff Reardon and he unlike Fingers opted to shave, so it used to be intresting when someone famous for a beard joined them and had to shave.
