Both Ross and starting catcher Jarrod Saltalamacchia are sporting beards this season. But Ross gets special notice for that magic touch of grey he’s sporting at his beard’s tip. On Aug. 27, Ross tugged on Napoli’s beard after Napoli hit a home run in the fourth inning of Boston’s game against Baltimore at Fenway Park.
Napoli paid it forward to Shane Victorino, who hit his second homer of the game in the fifth. The Red Sox went on to win 13-2. Don’t mess with Greybeard.
