Not sure where else to put this. An open question from a friend of mine writing a piece on beards for the NYT Styles section: how many of the 2013 Sox had beards? I told him that by the playoffs it was pretty much the whole roster except Uehara and Bogaerts (though even X may have had some peach fuzz). Am I forgetting anyone? Anyone got a precise beard count?

Good music, silent auction with cool stuff, lots of free food from various local restaurants (last year I recall stuff from Sweet Cheeks, the sausage guy, and a bunch of others), great cause.
And the Jimmy Fund New Stars deal is tomorrow, tickets still available

Pawsox Hot Stove open house is Saturday the 25th
New PawSox manager Kevin Boles and new coach Bruce Crabbe will give fans a preview of what the 2014 club will look like. Several PawSox players and top Red Sox prospects like outfielders Bryce Brentz & Alex Hassan, pitcher Steven Wright, and others are expected to attend the party and will be available for photos and autographs.
Always a fun, free event, great for kids.  Players and managers take questions and give solid answers, then there's a long line for autographs where you get a brief one on one with each player/coach/manager.  Free hot dogs, soda, chips/pretzels, etc.  Events take place in the locker rooms and in the batting cage/workout area, which is more fun for the kids. 
Tons of free parking, and the hallway that leads to the event sites is totally packed with memorabilia -- a Sox fan could easily spend 3-4 hours just looking at this museum qualify collection of historic Red Sox and Pawsox material.
