Would you trust someone who has “never actually given a haircut” to cut your hair?
Maybe not, but the Butler baseball team put their trust in redshirt junior Zach Parker.
It’s a tradition that dates back long before Parker’s time at Butler.
Parker transferred to Butler from Lewis University his sophomore year. As a catcher with a batting average of .258 this season, he also plays the role of team haircutter, previously held by graduate Josh Walker.
