Brennaman's haircut to come after Friday's game
CINCINNATI -- Beyond a big series opener between the first-place Reds and second-place Pirates on Friday that will have ramifications on the balance of the National League Central race, there will be much anticipation about something that has nothing to with the game itself.

Reds fans, players and staff will be watching as Reds broadcasting legend Marty Brennaman is expected to have his head shaved on the field following the 7:10 p.m. ET game. The haircut will be carried live on MLB.com.

Brennaman will be paying off on a pledge he made earlier this season that he would cut his longtime poofy-white hairstyle if the Reds broke off a 10-game winning streak. Cincinnati did just that with a victory on Sunday at Colorado, and Brennaman agreed to make good on his declaration and to lose his locks.

There is one caveat, however. Brennaman will only have his hair cut on the field if the Reds Community Fund reaches a fundraising goal of $20,000 for the event. If it's not reached, Brennaman will have his cut privately before the game. According to a Reds spokesman, the Reds Community Fund is close to reaching its pledge goal.
