1. Hunky facial hair

One of the first things you will notice when looking at different pictures of Grichuk is his fondness for facial hair.

Sometimes he sports a goatee and other times he’s got the whole scruffy face thing going on. Maybe he is setting the trend in St. Louis or did he pick up the hot man look at some point in Texas, where he was born?

2. He’s apparently cool with gay people

A major reason we dig this handsome millennial born player is that he seems to be cool with gay folks. In May of 2015, the studly outfielder Tweeted that he enjoyed meeting and hanging out with Andy Cohen.

And you know what – we think that’s awesome because a lot of sports players get all paranoid about being seen chilling with gays. Not Randal – which makes him even more awesome! It also makes him a smart person!

3. He’s got a powerful right arm

In 2015, Randall won the distinction of the longest home run at Busch Stadium for that playing year by a Cardinals player. We’ve watched this man play and he’s an aggressive hitter who does well with first pitch fastballs.

His one weakness is that he sometimes will miss the easy pitches, such as high fastballs over the plate. Hey, nobody is perfect – right?

If you are a follower of Grichuk, there are three things that the man simply cannot live without. These include: Netflix, his phone and food.

6. He’s had some injuries

Like most athletes, Randal has experienced his fair share of injuries. In his case, he tore a ligament in 2010 during his time with the Los Angeles Angels.

He also fractured his knee cap while batting a foul ball. And finally, he broke his wrist once while diving for a ball. Apparently he is all healed up now from these injuries but hey –

Randal – if you need someone to play nurse, we can do that for you!
