Andrew McCutchen cuts off signature dreadlocks for charity


Since he's joined the club, outfielder Andrew McCutchen has taken the Pittsburgh Pirates from David to a possible Goliath in the National League Central.

The Pirates will have to hope the biblical comparisons end there after McCutchen cut off his signature dreadlocks Wednesday.

It was all for a good cause, as McCutchen will auction off his locks. The proceeds will be used to benefit Pirates charities.

Following the haircut, the Pirates posted a picture of McCutchen's new look on Twitter.

That's certainly a big change.

The bigger question will be whether McCutchen can perform up to his usual levels without his long hair. While McCutchen's performance in the majors has been super-human, much like Samson's, we have a feeling he'll be just fine with his new look.
