His name is Jonathan Lucroy, one of the catchers. He has a shaved head and his beard was nearly to his collarbone. I haven’t seen someone psych out a pitcher who was trying to psych him out this well since Mark Grace played for the Cubs and went up against a Cy Young award winner whose name escapes me, but an arrogant cuss. He absolutely wilted as Grace hit one foul ball after another on him, and finally wonking it straight out over the ivy at Wrigley.
