The Story of Hugo ‘Juice’ Tandrón, official barber of the Miami Marlins

The only official barber in all of MLB

Only one ball club in all of Major League Baseball has an in-house barber shop. Called Headz Up Barbershop, it belongs to Hugo “Juice” Tandrón of the Miami Marlins.

A Miami native, Juice has been the official barber of the Marlins for 19 seasons now. He got his start cutting the hair of various players in his own home, in bathrooms and for different ball clubs until the Marlins gave him his own space when they opened Marlins Park in 2012.

His favorite tattoo is the word “Blessed” on his left eyebrow. Here’s Juice’s story of how he got that way.
