David Ortiz and Shane Victorino Get Shorn

It took them months to grow…and mere minutes to shave off.

Monday, in front of a standing room only crowd at Gillette World Shaving Headquarters, Boston Red Sox stars David Ortiz and Shane Victorino lost their beards.  Also on hand getting his chin curtain clipped…Boston Police Officer Steve Horgan. You know, the bullpen cop who was immortalized when Detroit Tigers outfielder toppled over the wall trying to catch an Ortiz home run.

“Oh, I feel fresh,” the World Series MVP told the Boston Globe. “I’m going down South now, so I got to keep it real. It’s not that cold down there.” 

Don't worry, friends. If you're a fan of the furry All-Stars, you can go to bed knowing they did it far a good cause. Gillette donated $100,000 to the One Fund…which was set up to aid Boston Marathon bombing victims.
