Technically it's a top knot since it's not long all over, but check out Miguel Cabrera's hairstyle coming into the 2020 season. The closely cropped sides and bun on top toward the back are visible in the Instagram pics showing him in the batting cage with the caption, "--⚾".

The two-time AL MVP hit .330 with 44 home runs and 139 RBI in his Triple Crown season of 2012.
