Tim Lincecum appears to be the latest professional athlete to cut his signature long hair. A few days ago, we shared a video of snowboarder Shaun White cutting off his iconic long red locks. Now, pictures have surfaced of the San Francisco Giants pitcher sporting a cropped hairdo. @csnbaggs i know this is a week old, but i’m surprised there hasn’t been a story on this, lol. R.I.P. Lincecum Hair. twitter.com/felixisback/st… — Blondie (@felixisback) December 19, 2012 @csnbaggs OK, is this clearer? Hair = gone. twitter.com/felixisback/st… — Blondie (@felixisback) December 20, 2012 A Seattle hair stylist named Jake Gravbrot first shared the news over Twitter on Dec. 9 that Lincecum had cut his hair. Gravbot made it clear that he did not cut Lincecum’s hair, but he does thing it signifies a “fresh start” for the pitcher. Lincecum’s hair was actually short when he first came up with the Giants, and when he pitched for the University of Washington. The two-time Cy Young Award winner began growing out his hair around 2008, which was his second season in the bigs. After a nice five-year ride, it looks like he’s gone back to his shorter hair. Giants fans are hoping the haircut will have a reverse-Sampson effect and help the pitcher regain his All-Star form following a poor 2012 campaign. Fist pound to Big League Stew Photo Credit: Mark J.
