Are the Red Sox beards helping them win?
BOSTON (WHDH) -- Boston sports fans can be a little bit superstitious, but do you think Red Sox players’ beards are helping them win?
“I think ever since they started growing the beards the home runs must have been going up cause it’s been working,” Sox fan Danny Gannon said.
Sox first baseman Mike Napoli said the beards have been around all season; starting with spring training.
“Johnny Gomes probably was the starter of it. He got to spring training and his beard was long and we got to talking and we said 'lets grow them out for the whole year' before you knew it there were 12 guys with beards,” Napoli said.
The Red Sox organization has embraced the trend, offering $1 tickets on beard night.
