Rays rail: Going bald

Bald moves

Sixty-four members of the Rays organization, led by manager Joe Maddon and including principal owner Stuart Sternberg, shaved their heads, and one, DH Luke Scott, his mutton chops, on Friday to raise funds and awareness for the Pediatric Cancer Foundation. There was also a female participant: Sandy Dengler, director of major-league administration. "We're having a hope-raising, hair-raising, fundraising event," PCF executive director Nancy Crane said. "Joe Maddon is a very special man." Donations can be made through pcfcutforacure.org, and T-shirts are available (for $15.99, with proceeds to charity) at team outlets, All Children's Hospital, the Moffitt Cancer Center and PCF offices.



Who is this Ray?

He began his career in the Pirates organization and made his big-league debut for the Royals. Is from the same hometown as Rays reliever Joel Peralta.
