BOSTON (AP) _ The beards are coming off for World Series Most Valuable Player David Ortizand outfielder Shane Victorino.
The two Red Sox players will shave Monday as part of a promotion.
Suddenly famous bullpen policeman Steve Horgan and a fan chosen by social media will join them during a shave-off at Gillette headquarters in Boston.
The Red Sox players’ beards became a symbol of their solidarity as they went from worst to first and won the team’s third World Series title in 10 years.
Horgan became a fixture in Boston after he was photographed with his arms in the air celebrating Ortiz’s grand slam in the AL championship series against Detroit.
