Mustache May 'stache of the Day: Jeffrey Leonard

Thanks to the continued support of the American Mustache Institute, it is with great pleasure that I continue our month long celebration of the 'stache with the "HacMan" himself...Jeffrey Leonard.

Leonard has always been a favorite of mine and, admittedly, it isn't because of his mustache. Something that endeared me to Leonard was when, in 1987, he won the NLCS MVP award. Why is that a big deal? His Giants lost the series.

AMI Style: Part chevron, part walrus...one flap down.

Grade: C+ Leonard's lip sweater was a perfect accessory to his manacing scowl. That being said...it lacked the defining character of, say, a Luis Tiant or "Goose" Gossage.


If you are feeling up to it this weekend, it appears as though I'll be updating the world on the status of Mustache May over at 720 WGN-AM Sunday night at midnight CST.
