Saturday, prior to his Cubs taking on the Los Angeles Dodgers, the skipper had his head shaved for charity. This is the third year Maddon’s “Respect Bald’ event has been held in Mesa. And not surprisingly, a majority of the team was on board.
Some even raised a good chunk of money in the process.
Cubs prospect Taylor Davis hasn’t had his locks shorn in four years. Combined, he and teammate Pierce Johnson raised more than $50,000 for the cause.
“It’ll definitely be a big change, but it’s worth it,” Davis said Friday. “What better cause to support than for the kids? I think everybody’s role in life should be to have a purpose for somebody else, you know? Hopefully, this will raise awareness for something.”
The catcher wasn’t alone.
