Brennaman asks fans to donate for shaving spectacle
CINCINNATI -- Hall of Fame broadcaster Marty Brennaman has announced that he would shave his head on the field of Great American Ball Park on Friday night. But there is one caveat -- Brennaman wants fans to donate at least $20,000 to the Reds Community Fund.

Brennaman said he would shave his head bald if the Reds won 10 straight games and is now turning the deal into a fundraiser. The Red secured victory No. 10 on Sunday at Colorado and players on the club remembered the pledge. Brennaman did not back down.

"If the fans can raise $20,000 or more for the Reds Community Fund, I will agree to have it done on the field, after the game and before the fireworks," said Brennaman. "I'm taking this opportunity to make good on my promise to shave my head while encouraging fans to make a donation to a charity that is very close to my heart."

If the $20,000 plateau is not reached, Brennaman will still have his head shaved. But it will be done in private by his personal barber and he will reveal his new look for fans to see during Friday night's game.
