Alberta teen banned from baseball team over long hair

Mackenzie has been coaching the team for seven years and says his decision comes down to basic respect for the game.

“To me, the hair issue is part of the uniform,” he said. “It’s like the hat. It’s like the jersey. It’s all part of the appearance and that’s important to me, to have respect for yourself and for your other team mates.”

The kid says that he’s growing it out to donate to a cancer charity. I’ll leave you to make your own decisions about the respect and moral values there.
