Before playing the San Diego Padres at Sloan Park, the team -- including Cubs’ manager Joe Maddon, rookie Jorge Soler and pitcher Phil Coke -- participated in a fundraising event called “Respect Bald” that involved shaving their heads to support children battling cancer.
According to Maddon, the “Respect Bald” event helped raise more than $12,000.
Yahoo! Sports reports that 25 players were expected to shave their heads at the event. Several coaches and office staff also took part.
