Jose Reyes parted ways with a commodity near and dear to his heart Friday — his hair. The Marlins shortstop had a televised haircut on MLB Network to show he is complying with his new team’s rules. He also turned it into a charity event; the hair is up for bid on eBay and the proceeds will go to the Make-A-Wish Foundation in South Florida.
“It’s going to be a little bit emotional, because I’ve spent three years with this hair,” Reyes said before getting his locks chopped. “At the same time, I understand it’s a rule of my new team, the Miami Marlins. I’m a team player, so I have to cut it off.”
Bidding for the hair started off at $2,500 and has nearly doubled. Given the way Reyes was so attached to his locks, I wouldn’t be surprised if turned out to be the winning bidder.Google+
