Some famous Boston beards will be falling victim to the razor.
Some famous Boston beards will be falling victim to the razor on Monday.
World Series MVP David Ortiz and Boston Red Sox teammate Shane Victorino had their beards shaved for charity Monday to benefit victims of the Boston Marathon bombings in April.
The beards are coming off for World Series Most Valuable Player David Ortiz and outfielder Shane Victorino.
Photos captured Horgan's raised arms next to the upturned legs of Tigers outfielder Torii Hunter, who tumbled over the short wall into the Fenway Park bullpen in an unsuccessful attempt to catch David Ortiz's grand slam. The result: a flood of media attention and a new name for his joyous, hands-up gesture: "Horganing."
Boston police officer Steve Horgan never imagined that a simple gesture celebrating a thrilling comeback by the Red Sox would create such a buzz.
"I started it a week before the playoffs," Horgan said of his full beard.
"A thrill of a lifetime," Horgan said.
