Catfish Hunter and Rollie Fingers

Dear Catfish and Rollie,

Each of you achieved a level of mustache excellence often imitated but never duplicated. Well done, pitching legends. Your facial hair has sprinkled baseball history with style and class.

One went up. One went down. Both stayed on top.

It's like I always say: you can take the mustache out of the man, but you can't take the man out of the mustache. Of course, what I always say makes absolutely no sense, but I still say it and I will continue saying it.

You played for the Oakland A's, the Athletics, but nothing proved your athleticism more than your use of the real estate between your lip and nose.

When your name is Catfish or Rollie, people expect great things from your face...

Thanks for not letting us down,

Aspiring Mustache-ateur
