Liam Nazarek is a 16 year old Pincher Creek athlete. He has been
growing his hair for a year with the plan to donate it in September to
make wigs for kids with cancer, an issue close to his heart. On
Wednesday evening this week he was forced to choose: cut his hair or be
barred from playing for his baseball team, Pincher Creek's Junior Dust
At the commencement of Wednesday's Dust Devils home opener against
Cardston Liam was told he would not be allowed to play, because his hair
had not been cut. "He has been told that he can't play on the local
baseball team. He hasn't been asked to leave the team, he has just been
told that he can't play. So he sat on the bench for the game last
night," said his mother Kimberly Jorgenson.
Jorgenson and Coach Bryan Mackenzie exchanged words before the game
about the situation, and that encounter was videotaped and posted to
Facebook by Jorgenson, and is excerpted in part below.
All money donated will be given to cancer research.
