Due to team policy, Reyes will be forced to cut his hair prior to the 2012 season. 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.
