If you wanted to be one of the active career saves leaders in the American League in 1984, you had to have a mustache. Let’s go through the top three at that time:
In third place with 136 saves, Dan Quisenberry made up for his basic, everyman mustache with an incredible submarine delivery.
In second place with 206 saves, Rich Gossage complemented a legendary ‘stache with a legendary nickname, “Goose.”
And, leading the way with 301 saves, Rollie Fingers redefined the baseball mustache during an era when there was a lot of competition – a great deal of mustachery, one might say.
