Miami Marlins shortstop cut his famously long hair on the MLB Network last week, and it is currently being auctioned off on EBay for charity.

According to NBC’s HardballTalk, the bidding for the hair has already surpassed $6,000, with over an hour left to make bids. If you would like a piece of baseball history, you can bid here.

Proceeds will reportedly go to the Make-A-Wish Foundation.

Reyes was forced to cut his hair before the beginning of Spring Training due to team policy. The All-Star shortstop had previously played his entire career with the New York Mets, who had no such policy, before signing a $106 million deal with the Marlins this winter. The New York Yankees are famous for having a similar hair policy. Johnny Damon had to shed his famous locks and beard prior to joining them in 2006.
