Marty Brennaman goes bald for good cause

Marty Brennaman’s signature locks are no more.

Friday night, the Reds Hall of Fame broadcaster shaved his head on the field before postgame fireworks at Great American Ball Park.

A few weeks ago, Brennaman told Reds bench coach Chris Speier that he would shave his head if the club won 10 straight games. Brennaman was a man of his word, going bald in honor of the Reds' winning streak from July 19-29.

Brennaman requested $20,000 in donations in order to make his haircut a public event. In total, $50,000 was raised for the Reds Community Fund thanks to the donations from hundreds of fans and sponsors.
