Show us your Red Sox beard

Facial hair has been as prominent as home-runs and hot dogs at Fenway Park this season.

Reliever Andrew Miller started growing his beard last season, but told pro baseball reporter Chris Smith that he wasn’t sure if he was the first: “I think Jonny has had that one for awhile’” Miller said.

He means Jonny Gomes, of course, who along with David Ross and Mike Napoli has grown a particularly long and arguably unstylish beard.

That’s not all the players who have been on the facial-hair bandwagon on the way to the American League Division Series. And now fans are getting in on it, too.

So send your photos of your real, fake, bushy, or lame facial hair to Tracey Rauh, managing editor of features, trauh@eagletribune.com (subject: Red Sox Beards.)

You might just find yourself in The Daily News — albeit a little itchy, but isn’t it worth taking one for the team???
