Jacob deGrom’s new haircut featured on 2018 Mets bobblehead By Newsday Staff
Jacob deGrom has shed his trademark flowing locks and the bobblehead doll of him that the Mets give away in July will reflect it.
The 15-game winner, through a team statement, said he got his hair restyled shortly after the season ended. His finely coifed, clean-shaven new look was captured by teammate Jose Reyes and shared on Snapchat.
“Maybe my new haircut will give us good luck for next season,” said deGrom, who owns a career 2.98 earned-run average and struck out 239 last season.
The bobblehead will be distributed to the first 25,000 fans through the gates for the July 7 game against the Tampa Bay Rays. Other fun giveaways include a Yoenis Cespedes gnome on May 5 and a Mr. Met bobblehead at the May 19 Star Wars night game against the Rockies.
