"Allderdice baseball coach Jon Parker calls his hairstyle a "no-walk Mohawk."
Parker said he got the new look this season to help focus his pitchers on throwing strikes, something the Dragons have struggled with this season.
"I've never had a hairstyle in my whole life," Parker said. "We've just been drilling into them, 'Don't walk anybody, don't walk anybody, attack the strike zone.'
"I'm not a gimmick person. I'm usually pretty steady and stable, but we've really had some pitching challenges."
Last week, Parker and his Mohawk guided Allderdice to a 4-2 win against Brashear for the school's fifth consecutive City League championship".
