Swisher's hair

Postby SlightlyStoopid » Wed May 16, 2007 10:38 pm

This has been well documented around the bay area but I wanted to spread the word around here too. I know many of you appreciate Swisher's contributions to your fantasy team but you should be aware of the contributions he makes off the field too. He isn't growing his hair just to be another Neanderthal Man like Damon a few years ago, he's growing it for a good cause. Saturday, on the field, before the game with the Giants he is going to get it cut and donate it to the Pantene Beautiful Lengths campaign, a program that makes wigs for cancer stricken women, like his late grandmother. It's good to know that all ball players aren't stuck up jerks.

In his own words:
"I've joined with the Entertainment Industry Foundation and its Women's Cancer Research Fund as an ambassador in a program called Pantene Beautiful Lengths. Not only am I an ambassador for the program but I'm growing my hair out so that I can donate it to help make wigs for cancer patients.

My grandmother passed away from her cancer in August 2005. She was the closest person to me in my life, so I saw first-hand what it was like for her while she was losing some of her hair due to the chemotherapy. I went through it with her."

Way to represent OSU Nick Swisher!

Good to see a baseball player do something like that every once in a while

This is great! Many of my friends have grown their hair out for Locks for Love.

On another note, I bet the ratio of jerks to good guys in the MLB is similar to the rest of the population. Jerks are everywhere. It's nice to see people doing good things, not just baseball players.

Yeah, it's not like we're talking about the NBA.
