Is the baseball beard to be feared or just plain weird?

The Boston Red Sox is hoping their playoff beards will bring them luck in the World Series, which starts tonight.

Who has the fiercest beard in baseball?

The Boston Red Sox - heading into the World Series for the third time in the 2000's - would have you believe that they have the best collection of whiskers.

It also makes me think of a bygone baseball era when the Benton Harbor, Mich.- based House of David barnstormed with long hair and long facial growth.

Beards can't pitch, hit or catch. But they sure are fun to talk about.

Game 1 of the World Series is tonight (Oct. 23).

Count how many beard references FOX brings us. My guess is at least a dozen.
