When the 1984 season started, Bill Buckner had never even played a Major League game in Boston.
He had become a productive first baseman who had led the National League in doubles in 1983.
A ball had never gone between his legs in Game Six of the World Series.
Red Sox Nation hadn’t yet bestowed all their 68 years of hostility upon him.
But above it all in 1984, did he ever rock that mustache.
