Josh Reddick takes Coco Crisp Chia Pet Day a step further

In addition to Father's Day, Sunday was also Coco Crisp Chia Pet Day at the Oakland Coliseum. The A's gave out clay statues of Crisp's head with chia sprouts inside. Within a few days, the growing herb will replicate the outfielder's trademark Afro hairdo.

Coco's teammate Josh Reddick didn't wait and water before getting in on the festivities, donning a Crisp jersey and fake 'fro before stepping into the cage for BP.
