BAKERSFIELD, Calif. – The Bakersfield Condors are joining the Movember celebration, with each member of the team, coaching staff and even the front office employees growing mustaches to raise awareness of men’s health.
Movember started in 2003 in Australia as a way to promote awareness of prostate cancer and other health issues that primarily affect men. It has since turned into a global movement that has helped raise over $170 million worldwide. Fans are encouraged to visit the team’s official Movember page to track the awesomeness of each player’s mustache growth, as well as to donate to the cause.
Each player will have their own link so fans can donate money to the mustache they like best.

“When this is done, we’re going to do another team picture, 70’s-style,” said Head Coach Matt O’Dette. “(Asst. Coach) Kevin Barrett and I will wear leather leisure suits. It will be great!
“All joking aside, the guys really wanted to do this as a team. Not a lot of attention is paid to the issues that many of us will eventually face, so we hope to raise everyone’s awareness.”
