Hall of Fame broadcaster Marty Brennaman's signature white locks will disappear as a result of the Cincinnati Reds' 7-2 win over the Colorado Rockies on Sunday. It was the Reds' 10th consecutive win.

During a conversation with bench coach Chris Speier a few weeks ago, Brennaman said he would shave his head if the Reds won 10 in row.

With the Reds at nine straight coming into Sunday, Speier reminded Brennaman of promise when he arrived Sunday morning.

"I'm a man of my word," Brennaman said. "I'll do it."

Brennaman said he'll lose his hair Friday or Saturday in the Reds clubhouse. He has television commercials to shoot Monday and then is not working the San Diego Padres series, which opens Monday.

Right hander Homer Bailey was mentioned as the barber.

"I don't need to cut his hair," Bailey said. "You probably will need wire cutters. I'm not qualified to use heavy machinery. He can still talk bad about us on the radio, but now he can do it bald."

A lot of players gestured to the radio booth as they came off the field after Sunday's win

"That's a good thing," manager Dusty Baker said. "He's proud of that hair."
