The Cubs shaved their heads to raise money for pediatric cancer

Sunday March 22nd, 2015

Chicago Cubs players, coaches and front office staff shaved their heads before Sunday's game to support children battling cancer as part of an event called "Respect Bald."

Fans who donated $100 could have their heads shaved on the field alongside the players. Fans who donated $50 could have their head shaved and get a "Respect Bald" t-shirt. 

First baseman Anthony Rizzo bleached his hair blond before shaving it off.

Hopefully all their hats still fit.
