On Tuesday, Berger joked that he grew his handlebar moustache throughout the off season “to honor all the old timers.” Pressed further, he quipped: “Seen anyone else these days who has one? That’s why.”
Said new manager Chris Tremie: “It takes all types to play this game, it really does. There’s all different characteristics, all differnet attitudes and different personalities. So if that helps (Berger) and he feels comfortable with it, then that’s something that’s good for him. It’s a personal choice.”
