There's no crying in baseball. Turns out there's also no long hair.

A Canadian youth league baseball coach has found himself in the center of a storm for benching a player who refused to cut his hair so he could grow it out to donate to kids with cancer.

After the coach, Bryan Mackenzie, made his decision, he met with the parents of Liam Nazarek, 16, in an exchange recorded on camera. He tried to defend his point of view, but when you've got a kid who's trying to help sick children you're definitely not going to come out of this looking good.
