STURTEVANT, Wis.-Baseball barber Angel Lucas, who calls himself Monster99, has been using the Andis T-Outliner trimmer to shape the beards of the World Series champion Boston Red Sox.

The Red Sox began growing their beards during this season's spring training, as a means of unifying the team. According to an Andis statement, Lucas began trimming the beards when he befriended David Ortiz, who was named the Series' Most Valuable Player. He later extended to tending the beards of some of Ortiz's teammates.

The Andis T-Outliner is a professional-grade trimmer equipped with a close-cutting T-Blade, with fine teeth designed for close-up work.
