I'm glad I found this... may I present to you, Maxim's Top 10 Baseball's Men of Mustache:

10. Rod Beck

Image
His eyes say no. His mustache says, "Sure, if you're cookin' ribs."

9. Goose Gossage

Image
Scores points in the all-important "breadth of mustache" category. His 'stache was/is as wide as the ocean is deep. If his mustache were a continent, it would be Asia; if it were a beard, it would be either Liza Minnelli or Clay Aiken's "assistant."

8. Don Mattingly

Image
Donnie Baseball was a disciplined hitter. His mustache was equally steadfast and unflinching, often grooming itself between innings.

7. Jack Morris

Image
Like he'd have been anywhere near as imposing on the hill with, say, 90210 sideburns? If you're a would-be ace, your choice of facial hair is more important than your choice of an out pitch.

6. Sal Fasano

Image
The Phillies impose no tonsorial or, um, mustachial restrictions on their players…

5. Sal Fasano, circa August 2006

Image
…but the Yankees do, forbidding any facial hair below the lip (the franchise thus lacks both soul and soul patch). Credit goes to Fasano for semi-skirting the rules, managing to conform to corporate mandate while still remaining merrily slovenly.

4. Wade Boggs

Image
His mustache arches sharply, majestically down the slope of his cheek, much like the wings of a 747.

3. Al "the Mad Hungarian" Hrabosky
Image
Between his forbidding Fu Manchu and his apoplectic stomping about the mound, Hrabosky must've had a hard time making friends during his baseball heyday. Legend has it that grown men and young children alike cowered in his presence, dropping to their knees in a futile attempt to deter him from pillaging their peasant enclaves.

2. Rollie Fingers
Image
The lone representative of the 1972 Oakland "Mustache Gang" on this list, which did for facial hair in baseball what Ravi Shankar did for emotional expression via the sitar.

1. Keith Hernandez
Image
His mustache is his oxygen, his religion, his élan vital. He'd no sooner trim it than renounce womankind. The mountains shall tumble into the sea before Keith Hernandez goes Kojak above the lip.

Man...this thread has really made me want to rock a mustache. I think my personal facial hair highlight would be the time I went from early June of '05 to January of '06 with nary a shave, or even a trim. A little more than six months of growth covering everywhere on my face that sprouts hair.

Although atleast 1/3 of those totals are usually the opposition's fans.

And yeah, I'm going to a game this weekend, and I'll definitely be trying to get Sal's autograph. ;-D Hopefully he can hit a few HRs while he's up here as well, in addition to showing off that 'stache.
