Great mustaches in New York sports history
Great mustaches in New York sports history, listed in completely random order so you can enjoy the suspense of who's next when you click the arrows.
RON GUIDRY, Yankees
Guidry retired from baseball in 1988 and he still sports a perfectly manicured mustache. You must respect his dedication, and that 1978 season when he went 25-3 with a 1.78 ERA and 248 strikeouts in 273.2 innings. Guidry was 170-91 with a 3.29 ERA in 14 seasons with the Yankees.
STEPHON MARBURY, Knicks
For all his gifts and problems on the court, Marbury was steadfast in his choice of hair growth on his upper lip.
BRANDON DUBINSKY, Rangers
Dubinsky dropped down from a playoff beard to a playoff mustache for Game 3 of the Rangers' 2011 first-round playoff series against the Capitals. What happened? Dubinsky scored the game-winner to pull the Rangers within 2-1 in the series.
MIKE PIAZZA, Mets
Piazza hit 220 home runs in eight years with the Mets and became the MLB career leader for home runs as a catcher while playing in New York. Chicks dig the long ball when hit by a guy with a mustache.
TREVOR GILLIES, Islanders
Do you want to be anywhere in between him and the hockey puck? That's a guaranteed major penalty for 'staching.
BILLY MARTIN, Yankees
He was hired five times and fired five times as Yankees manager by owner George Steinbrenner. His mustache, however, was only fired twice.
DAVE WINFIELD, Yankees
The first Yankee to sign a 10-year deal, Winfield and his mustache patrolled right field in the Bronx for a long time. He famously battled Don Mattingly's mustache for the AL batting title down to the final day of the 1984 season.
JOHN TONELLI, Islanders
Seven seasons, four Stanley Cups, one amazing mustache.
DICK TIDROW, Yankees
So thick, so perfectly shaped around the lip. Whether he was a starter or reliever, Tidrow must have instilled some fear in opposing hitters in the mid-1970s.
