MLB Pitchers and the Mustache – Fastballs mean nothing without the Mustache

Rollie Fingers ended his career with a then record 341 saves and three World Series Titles.

Dennis Eckersley went from being a great starter to one of the best closers in MLB History. This Hall of Famer is the last relief pitcher to win the MVP award.

Before disease and injuries took its toll, Jim “Catfish” Hunter helped the Oakland A’s and New Yankees dominate the American League.

At six foot ten, Randy Johnson was one of baseball’s most feared pitchers. Along with his classic mustache came a 100 MPH fastball. Johnson ended his career with 303 wins and 2nd all-time in strikeouts with 4,875.

He didn’t wear it often, but Maddux knew that a mustache is what all great pitchers must wear at times. Maddux won a MLB record 18 Gold Gloves, 4 CY Young Awards and won 355 games, 8th all-time.

Roger Clemens won a MLB record seven CY Young Awards. He however, did it best while wearing the Mustache. He is also third all-time in career strikeouts.
