Jose Reyes was forced to lose the dreadlocks in order to conform to the dress code of his new team, the Miami Marlins -- but fortunately, he was able to put the haircut toward a good cause. Reyes' locks solid for $10,200 in a charity auction, according to the Associated Press.

Five days after having the dreads lopped off on live television, Reyes successfully sold them on eBay. The proceeds will benefit the Make-A-Wish Foundation of Southern Florida. The former Mets shortstop signed a six-year, $106 million deal with the Marlins in December. But for a good charity, every little bit helps.
