Puerto Rico is a victory away from winning the 2017 World Baseball Classic over the United States on Wednesday night at Dodger Stadium, and the team's run is causing a shortage of an interesting product.

As explained by the Associated Press (h/t Sports Illustrated's Extra Mustard), members of the team dyed their hair blond in a show of unity for the tournament.

Now fans are doing the same, so much so that stores in Puerto Rico are running out of dye.

Per the AP:

"Ever since they began winning, this has not stopped," said Myrna Rios, a manager at a Sally Beauty Supply store in the capital of San Juan. "We have run out of the product in most of our stores."

Stores better stock up in case Puerto Rico wins it all.
