The Xavier baseball team has a cool, new look.

Every player and staff member of the Musketeers shaved their heads to conclude their fundraising efforts in support of the Vs. Cancer foundation, which focuses on raising money to fight cancer both locally and nationally.

Xavier has raised more than $16,000 for Vs. Cancer, surpassing its initial goal of $15,000. The Musketeers’ fundraising has made them the top-earning team in college baseball this season. 

The money raised for the Vs. Cancer foundation will be split between the child life programs at local hospitals as well as national pediatric brain tumor research.

Xavier baseball participated in the event in both the 2014 and 2016 seasons, raising more than $25,000 for the cause, according to Xavier Athletics. Those funds were used to help the Vs. Cancer organization make a $100,000 gift to Cincinnati Children’s Hospital. Xavier’s donation helped the Cincinnati Children’s Hospital establish its Proton Therapy Center, one of only two such centers in the world owned by a children’s hospital.
