Bowie Baysox to Honor Mustached Americans

Much like Pamela Anderson and Hepatitis-C, since the 1970s the rich tradition of baseball and mustaches go hand-in-hand.

While the 1980s were a dark time for people of Mustached American heritage, it did not deter the Baltimore Orioles organization from strongly supporting those with lower nose accoutrements.

Lip-warming stalwarts like Eddie Murray, Rick Dempsey, Scott McGregor, Sammy Stewart and Mike Flanagan embodied a culture of acceptance in the Orioles landscape during a dark decade for the Mustached American community.

It is with this flavor-saving commitment that the Orioles Double-A affiliate, the Bowie Baysox, are collaborating with the American Mustache Institute to honor the Mustached American community on Wednesday night, May 4 at 7:00pm with the Baysox’s third annual “Mustache Mania” at Prince George’s Stadium.

The AMI’s Washington, D.C.-area Associate Steward Nathan Wilson will throw out the ceremonial first pitch, and people wearing mustaches real and fake will receive half-price admission for Lower Reserve tickets.

The offer is available on game day only at the Baysox ticket office and is valid for one half-priced Lower Reserved Seat Ticket per person donning a mustache or Mustaches For Kids (M4K) business card to the game.

The team will honor participating fans with mustache competitions including “Best Mustache” and “Most Pathetic Mustache.”

It’s a hairy deal indeed, and for more info call (301) 805-6000 or visit

Carry on.
