STATE HOUSE, BOSTON, FEB. 6, 2019.....Dr. Charles Steinberg wore three Red Sox World Series rings -- he hasn't received his fourth yet -- on his left hand in a State House hearing room Wednesday, the bejeweled red "B's" glimmering as he pointed to his mandible.

It was three fewer championship rings than were celebrated down the hill on Tuesday as New England Patriots players rolled by on duck boats, but still three more than you typically see at a briefing on oral health legislation.

Steinberg, president of the Pawtucket Red Sox, recounted his early years in baseball, working as a summer intern at the Baltimore Orioles and studying players' mouth guards while in dentistry school. He later became the team's dentist, counseling players against the use of smokeless tobacco, before working his way up to other roles in the league, including with the Red Sox organization.
