Manny Ramirez will fly his personal barber to Boston to have his famous long hair cut off in time for Friday’s game against the Red Sox, according to media reports Wednesday.
White Sox owner Jerry Reinsdorf sets high appearance standards and players A.J. Pierzynski and Joe Crede had to cut their hair in 2006.
"It seems like everywhere I go, people worry about my hair," Ramirez said after his White Sox debut Wednesday, where he went 1 for 3 in a 6-4 win over the Cleveland Indians. "I just want to go out there and play the game."
Ramirez’s barber Angel Pena cuts the hair of a number of MLB stars, including Cliff Lee, Derek Jeter and David Ortiz.
