Koji Uehara wasn’t big on the Red Sox beard craze

The Boston Red Sox premiered their World Series DVD in Boston this week and, as expected, it was quite the star-studded event. The above clip comes from the closing credits of the DVD, where the Sox players talk about, grade, stroke and, if you’re Johnny Gomes, eat their beards.

One of the Sox’s key players during their championship season, closer Koji Uehara, did not sport a beard of his own, and he provided some insight into why that was case.


Yep, Koji is still the best.
