SECAUCUS, N.J. (AP) — Along with a new uniform, Jose Reyes has a new, close-cropped look.
The All-Star shortstop had his dreadlocks trimmed during a nationally televised haircut Friday on the MLB Network.
Reyes said he’ll need a few days to get used to the lighter do.
He left the New York Mets in December for a $106 million, six-year contract with the Miami Marlins. Reyes’ new team has a rule prohibiting hair below the helmet line.
A man who would identify himself only as Jordan from Jordan’s Barber Shop in the Bronx performed the haircut at the MLB Network studios. Network spokeswoman Lorraine Fisher said the trim will benefit the Make-A-Wish Foundation of Southern Florida, which planned to auction the hair on eBay.
