When Pittsburgh Pirates center fielder Andrew McCutchen steps to the plate at Great American Ball Park for the first time on April 6, some baseball fans may be doing a double take.
As of Wednesday, McCutchen's signature dreadlocks are now a thing of the past.
"No big reason, really. It's just time for a new change." The Pirates star was quick to add that the haircut was going to help a good cause.
Take a look at the freshly groomed McCutchen:

But don't worry, McCutchen fans! Apparently, the dreadlocks will be auctioned off for charity on MLB.com. Don't miss out!
