Bearded Sox brigade

Regional high teachers lead charge

When the Boston Red Sox move on to the American League Division Series starting Friday, many of the Sox players will do so sporting bushy and, well, generally not-so-stylish beards.

And some residents across Cape Ann are growing beards of their own as a show of support.

Now, that craze has hit Manchester Essex Regional High School, where a number of teachers, coaches and even students — those who can — have joined in.

The Gloucester Daily Times will continue to run your beard pictures throughout the playoffs and, we hope, on to the World Series.

If you’re sporting or growing a beard — real or fake — to show support for the Sox, and you think it ought to be featured in the Gloucester Daily Times, just email a hi-res jpg, along with your name, hometown and caption information, to Special Projects Director Tracey Rauh at trauh@gloucestertimes.com.

Also, check out our special Sox page — Page 6 — inside today’s Times, with more Sox news in Sports on Pages 13 and 14.
