Andrew McCutchen does not plan to regrow his dreadlocks, bristling at the idea that the long hair was his trademark.
McCutchen got his first haircut in eight years this past March and donated the dreadlocks to charity.
"Never bringing them back," McCutchen told the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette. "Never."
McCutchen, 28, made four All-Star teams and won a National League MVP award over his first six seasons in the Major Leagues.
"All it was, for myself, was a haircut," McCutchen told the Post-Gazette. "I know for other people, it probably meant more because that was my trademark.
"But if my hair was my trademark, and that's the reason people know me, that means I suck at baseball."
