We’ll remember the 2013 postseason for the dominance of David Ortiz of the Boston Red Sox.
And we’ll also remember it for the long beards the Red Sox sported.
On Monday, the beards of Ortiz—the World Series MVP—and teammate Shane Victorino came off.
The beard bonding this year was in full effect: the Red Sox won 12 of their first 16 games this year, and the beards kept growing.
What did David Ortiz say after his beard came off: “I feel free, now.”
The players were shaved at the headquarters of Gillette, which donated $100,000 to the One Fund, which is helping the victims of the Boston Marathon bombing.
