BOSTON (AP) - World Series MVP David Ortiz and Boston Red Sox teammate Shane Victorino had their beards shaved for charity Monday to benefit victims of the Boston Marathon bombings in April.
    
The "shave offs" occurred at Gillette's world headquarters. The Boston company donated $100,000 to the One Fund, which is assisting victims and their families of the bombings on April 15.  Three people were killed and over 260 injured near the finish line that day.
    
Ortiz, fresh off his third World Series title with the Red Sox, joked that it's a perfect look for his offseason.
