Red Sox lose beards

World Series MVP David Ortiz and Boston Red Sox teammate Shane Victorino (pictured) had their beards shaved for charity Monday to benefit victims of the Boston Marathon bombings on April 15. The “shave offs” occurred at Gillette’s world headquarters. The Boston company donated $100,000 to the One Fund, which is assisting victims and their families of the bombings. Ortiz, fresh off his third World Series title with the Red Sox, joked that it’s a perfect look for his offseason. “I’m going down south – some place warm,” he said. Victorino appeared a bit shocked when he looked into a hand-held mirror and realized his beard and goatee were completely gone. “I’m a World Series champion and I look like I’m 12-years-old,” he said. – Associated Press
