Red Sox beards coming off for Gillette promotion
Some famous Boston beards will be falling victim to the razor on Monday.
Red Sox players David Ortiz and Shane Victorino will shave in a promotion at Gillette headquarters in Boston.
Joining them will be city policeman Steve Horgan, who was stationed in the Red Sox bullpen at Fenway Park. He became a fixture in Beantown after he was photographed with his arms in the air celebrating Ortiz's grand slam in the AL championship series against Detroit.
A fan chosen by social media also will take part in the shave-off.
The Red Sox players' beards became a symbol of their solidarity as they went from worst in the AL East last year to first this year by winning the team's third World Series title in a decade.
