Cleveland Indians owner Paul Dolan joined his players in shaving his head to support infielder Mike Aviles's four-year-old daughter, who was diagnosed with leukemia last month.

Aviles shaved Dolan's head in the dugout before Sunday's game.

"I appreciate this," Aviles said to Dolan, according to MLB.com. "I'm not going to lie to you. I really do."

Dolan joins several Indians players, including Jason Kipnis and Nick Swisher, in sporting the bald look. 

"I think it's really cool," manager Terry Francona said, according to MLB.com. "He's unassuming. I'm not surprised he wanted to join in. I think [general manager Chris Antonetti] and his guys should do it, too. I think they're being a bunch of big babies."

Dolan explained that he was impressed with how the team has rallied around Aviles.
