Can you imagine Joe Maddon with a bald head? Next Thursday, you won’t have to. The Rays manager, who grew out quite the flow during the course of last season, will be chopping off his locks next week for charity. According to the Tampa Bay Times, Maddon is shaving his head for the Pediatric Cancer Foundation and the Vincent Lecavalier Pediatric Cancer and Blood Disorders Center at All Children’s Hospital.
As Eye on Baseball pointed out, Reds reliever Bill Bray will also be participating. Maddon is also encouraging all of his players, coaches, and team officials to partake. Bench coaches Dave Martinez and Tom Foley have already committed as well as executive VP Andrew Friedman. You do not have to go completely bald for the event if you don’t want to — a buzz cut will do.
