77 Baseball Players Shave Heads in Support of Cancer Research

Posted on July 24th, 2013

Members of the UIS men’s baseball team shaved their heads in support of pediatric cancer research following their game on April 20, 2013. For many on the team, cancer is a very personal topic. Almost everyone has had a family member touched by the disease and this was a way of honoring his or her memory.
