Seventy-one members of the Tampa Bay Rays organization shaved their heads over the weekend, including players Wade Davis and Jose Molina, manager Joe Maddon, and team executives Matt Silverman (president), Andrew Friedman (executive vice president of baseball operations) and Stu Sterbnerg (principal owner).
It was all done in the name of fighting childhood cancer, a la HeyGoodCall friend Chase Jones of the University of North Carolina-Chapel Hill. The Rays didn't do it through Jones's St. Baldrick's Foundation, instead benefitting the Pediatric Cancer Foundation and the Vincent Lecavalier Pediatric Cancer and Blood Disorders Center at All Children's Hospital.
The event is still going in a way, as you can support the players by donating $10 by texting "Cut" to 50555 or donate whatever you want by visiting pcfcutforacure.org.
Maddon, who went all-out by letting the barber take a No. 1—the shortest cut possible—to his dome, said it "feels clean, feels good, feels right." Sternberg approved, saying it was a much-needed improvement to the shaggy dyed-blonde mop Maddon had been growing prior to the event.
Sternberg also donated $25,000.
