Bray to shave head, earn money for charity

Negative stories about celebrities and professional athletes get plenty of attention, so we try to pass along the real positive ones whenever we can -- like Marlins catcher John Buck playing hero of the day this past offseason -- and here's another one to pass along: Reds reliever Bill Bray is going to shave his head in an effort to raise money for childhood cancer research on March 17.

He'll do so at the Reds' player development complex in Goodyear, Ariz. Donors who pledge at least $25 toward Bray's head-shaving show of solidarity will get an 8X10 autographed photo of the lefty. Hit up Bray's Facebook page for information or to make a donation.

Note that this is taking place on St. Patrick's Day, and it's no coincidence. Bray's charity is the St. Baldrick's Foundation -- note that it's combining "bald" with the holiday.

Bray's personal tie to the cause is his 10-year-old cousin, Trevor, who has been fighting neuroblastoma cancer for the past several years.

“Trevor’s parents wanted me to get several signed baseballs for their upcoming auction, but I wanted to do more,” said Bray in a statement. “I thought, in addition to that, I should shave my head to raise money and national awareness for the St. Baldrick’s Foundation. Shaving my head is a simple sacrifice for a promising reward for Trevor and other children battling cancer every day.”

Kudos, Mr. Bray. And Godspeed, Trevor.

Awesome show of charity, I've had my head shaved for St. Baldrick's before as well and it's a very humbling experience but a very rewarding one as well. Kudos to Mr. Bray.

Bill Bray is one of the "good guys" in the game. Further proof that he's a class act, on the field and off.
