Lee said he's trying to recruit others on the team to join the no-shave club -- which would further help raise awareness for cancer and maybe even facilitate some team bonding -- but others have been resistant thus far.
"I’m trying to get some of the other dudes to do it, but they think they’re too cute around here to do it," joked Lee while screaming in the direction of a couple nearby teammates. "But they’re really not. Quote me."
