No player is to show up in a hotel dining room, or a Pullman dining car minus his jacket and cravat.
In short all Yankees are to look like Yankees. McCarthy wants no wearing of caps. He abhors public pipe smoking. He has a violent dislike for those Lord Fauntleroy sport shirts with open collars draped over the jacket.
Col. McPhail and Sparse Joe insist on a wall-draped, well-groomed, outfitted hair cut. Pusses shaved.
Yes, please make sure you shave your puss. Of course back in those days puss either referred to a cat or as in this case your face.
The terminology has changed but the Yankees still have their ban of facial hair. So the next time a player gets traded to the Yankees, just think he's going to have to shave his puss if he wants to wear pinstripes
