Whether it's a haircut or a new wardrobe, looking good for picture day was always a must when growing up. For Brandon Belt, a new look was a bit of an accident this year.
The Giants' first baseman arrived for photos in Scottsdale, Ariz., with something missing. Or a bit of something. Not his beard, not a haircut, but a piece of his right eyebrow.
"Fortunately, it was right before photo day, so I'm sure it's in every single one of them," Belt said Wednesday night to Amy G during the Giants' spring training game against the Indians. "But, it's comin' back."
Brandon Belt walked up to me the day before photo day and asked if it was noticeable that he had cut off half his eyebrow. He told the full story on the broadcast: pic.twitter.com/7PvS8gtL0I— Alex Pavlovic (@PavlovicNBCS) March 21, 2019
Yes, this wasn't on purpose. So how did this all happen? Let's hear Belt's side of the story.
"I was trimmin' my nose hairs and it had an eyebrow guard on it, so I thought I'd try it," Belt said. "You get those little stragglers every now and then. I did it on my left side. It looked a little thin so I had to even it out. Did it on my right side and chopped half my eyebrow off."
Mistakes happen, and memories are made. Maybe this is exactly what Belt needed to crack 20 home runs this season.
