Danks shaves head for good cause

GLENDALE, Ariz. -- As Chris Sale struggled with the clippers to shave John Danks' head outside of the White Sox clubhouse at Camelback Ranch on Monday, Danks made an apropos joke about Sale's future employment.

"We know what Sale's next job won't be," said Danks, drawing laughter from the assembled media.

For the fourth straight year, Danks had his head shaved for the St. Baldrick's Foundation that helps raise funds for childhood cancer research. Gavin Floyd, Mark Buehrle and Jake Peavy have been the previous barbers, but despite Sale's struggles on Monday, they were both proud to be part of the event.

"It's such a great cause for anybody going through a time like that," Sale said. "Just to put a smile on their face or bring light to their day any way you can. It's always awesome."

"Hopefully, we can continue to raise a bunch of money," Danks said. "It's fun to help a good cause."
