Bases loaded

How do you motivate a team of 12-year-old baseball players to do their very best? If you're Wally Clements, you offer up your hair.
As a challenge to give it their all following a defeat to a Bath County team at the Cal Ripken Baseball Tournament in Mount Sterling recently, Robertson County CRB League President Wally Clements said he would let the team shave his head if it beat the next team.

"They not only beat the team, they knocked Winchester out of the tournament with a 3-2 win," said Clements.
If you're in or around Maysville, Kentucky, you can even see the shaving done, as it'll be open to the public.
"After the coach pitch game is over, about 7:30 p.m., Tuesday, the team will get to shave my head, on the pitching mound, at the Lions Club Park," said Clements.
