Like with all professional sports, Major League Baseball players are a rare breed. Not only are they the best in the world at what they do, but they carry very unique personalities which manifest themselves in a variety of ways. Among the ways baseball players express themselves is through their appearance, most often that comes in the form of a unique hairstyle. The worst hair in baseball ranges from mullets, to unfortunate '80s styles, and some interesting dreadlocks. Who has the ugliest hair in baseball?

Major League Baseball players use helmets while they are on offense and wear a cap while they are in the field. Unlike football, where the helmet covers the entire head and the face mask covers the face, baseball players have more freedom to express themselves with their choice of hairstyle, though that isn't always for the best. From Randy Johnson's mullet, to Pete Rose's bowl cut hair, there has been plenty of bad hair in baseball over the course of MLB history.

So which baseball stars truly have the most terrible hair in the history of the sport? That's for you to decide. Upvote the worst baseball player hair below, or if you can think of other bad haircuts on baseball players, let us know in the comments section!

    Coco Crisp

    With a name like Coco Crisp, having some of the craziest hair in the history of baseball isn't necessary to stand out. However, Mr. Crisp decided that was not the case and chose to sport some of the worst hair-do's in the history of the league. The extreme afro he rocked was both good and bad, but the patch-mullet takes the cake for this guy.

  • The majority of people out there feel the same way about Bronson Arroyo's decision to go with the tight corn rows. They have to, don't they? Chances are the way they feel isn't positive.

    Manny Ramirez was an incredible player known for his skills at the plate and his wild personality. With that personality came some unique style statements, highlighted mostly by some ridiculous hairstyles. The droopy dreadlocks pony tail above is just one of many poor hair choices made by Ramirez.

  • There are plenty of good looking natural redheads out there. Finding an artificially enhanced redhead who can pull off the look is rare. Hanley Ramirez tried his hand at red, or maybe orange, hair and let's just say he failed big time.
