CLEVELAND (AP) — A little late but with all his hair, Manny Ramirez has finally joined his new team.
The controversial and colorful slugger arrived at Progressive Field on Tuesday for his first day with the Chicago White Sox, who claimed the 12-time All-Star on waivers this week to help their AL playoff push.
Ramirez walked into the ballpark at 3:15 p.m., entering from the Indians players' parking lot, where he used to park during his eight seasons with the Indians. His dreadlocked hair was at its usual length, but could be shorter in the next few hours.
The White Sox have an appearance policy, and they expect Ramirez to conform to it and get his dreadlocks trimmed.
A barber was set up in a room adjacent to Cleveland's clubhouse.
