He said he wouldn't shave his beard until the Nationals took the pennant. Now that they’re World Series champions, he’s taken it all off.
Saturday night, before a crowd of Natitude at the Salt Line, his nine-inch beard was gone.
Treuting's mom and sister gave ceremonial trims. Moments later, he saw his chin for the first time since 2012.
Treuting, a longtime Nova resident and school teacher who moved to New Orleans in July, flew home this weekend for the special shave.
He raised more than $1,600 online and is donating that money to the Nationals Youth Baseball Academy.
Treuting lost the beard, then the clothes. He pranced through the frosty waters of a fountain in celebration.
