Video: Hair-raising tale of Sox beards

October, 1, 2013

We talked to the Red Sox about the whiskers that have brought them together and into the playoffs:

* Jonny Gomes: “It’s just one of those quirky things that you know teams stick together and just show the chemistry. I’m glad everyone is on board, we’re having fun with it.”

* Mike Napoli: “We were at spring training and Jonny Gomes, he had a pretty long beard already, and he was like ‘Let’s grow our beards out.’ Everyone caught on and we’ve been growing them all year.”
