We've heard this before. Back in August, Jacob deGrom told the New York Times that he was considering cutting his hair.
Before it is over, though, deGrom checks to see how he looks with a hat on. Not because he is worried about being noticed and mobbed off the field; he simply wants to keep his hair out of his face. At times, it drives him crazy. When he tosses and turns too much in his sleep, his hair wakes him. On the mound, he often has to brush away loose strands. Without a hat, it can be unruly.
"I might cut it at the end of the year," he said recently.
Jacob deGrom says he's cutting his hair after the World Series. A big decision. Profiled the situation in August https://t.co/UVqqhfJi6o— Tim Rohan (@TimRohan) October 27, 2015
And here's video of deGrom confirming it.
It's okay though. We will always have the deGrom hairitage shirts for our keepsake. #hairwego
