Rohn’s Razor

The outstanding League Championship Series continued last night, with Detroit evening-up its series against Boston behind the pitching of former Rainiers right-hander Doug Fister, and the Dodgers staying alive with a game five win against St. Louis.

I was able to watch a good portion of the Fister game, but I missed all of the Dodgers-Cardinals game. And according to someone who watched it, I missed a rare Dan Rohn mention.

According to my friend, the announcers were talking about Brian Wilson‘s lengthy beard and the last time he shaved. They said that the last time Wilson shaved, it was because Dan Rohn made him.

Rohn managed the Rainiers from 2001 through 2005, then moved on to Fresno and managed Wilson in 2006 and 2007. The later year was Wilson’s final as a minor leaguer, and when the manager asked him to shave, he had to do it.

Last I heard, Rohn was living a semi-retired life in Traverse City, Michigan. Hey, we have an opening!

Rohn liked to make players shave and umpires clean plates.
