Royals minor-league pitcher Buddy Baumann has the worst haircut in the world. But good news, you can get one just like his.

Baumann, a Class AAA Omaha pitcher who attended Missouri State, made a bet with teammate Brett Eibner, who played at Arkansas, on the outcome of the SuperRegional series between their teams.

The Hogs won, so Baumann had his hair butchered:

Not surprisingly, the Storm Chasers are taking advantage of the attention Baumann received. In this Tuesday’s game, the team will offer free “Buddy Cuts.”

Two good things about this: The Storm Chasers and Supercuts will donate $20 to Foodbank of the Heartland for each haircut. And, after the third inning, anyone who has had a change of heart can go to a “Supercuts stylist” and get a crew cut.
