Ortiz showed off his trimmed facial hair.
How did it feel to have his beard shaved off? “Like I’m 12,” said Victorino.
Ortiz checked himself out in the mirror.
“Oh, I feel fresh,” said Ortiz. “I’m going down South now, so I got to keep it real. It’s not that cold down there.”
Also on hand was Boston Police Officer Steve Horgan.
Horgan gained notoriety after he was seen with his arms up-raised as Detroit Tigers outfielder Torii Hunter missed a home run in the ALCS.
With little urging, the nearly unrecognizable Horgan raised his arms in his now-famous victory salute.
Horgan showed off his freshly shaved face.

After Horgan’s beard was gone, Ortiz said, “Man, you look 12 for real. Oh, my goodness.”
