Every Moustache in Blue Jays History

Al-Oliver-100

Over the past 35 years, the Toronto Blue Jays have built themselves a rich history. The team has seen many changes since its inception in 1977, however one thing has has remained synonymous with the club since day one; and that’s the illustrious moustache.

Many iconic Blue Jays have donned moustaches over the years, and in honour of Movember I’ve compiled each and every single one of them into one video for your viewing pleasure. For those counting, it’s 117 moustaches in 204 seconds.



Perhaps the most revealing thing uncovered during my research for this project was there were five Blue Jays players named Willie who had a moustache. There’s no way that’s a coincidence, as being named Willie must have been a prerequisite for having a moustache (or vice versa).

And remember, please support your local moustaches supporting Prostate Cancer research and donating to Movember.

In case you wanted an entire rundown of every moustache, here’s a full list with all 117 pictures and names after the jump.

    What about Bautista's moustache? He had it for one game a few years ago in Oakland.

      I thought about including that one, but it was very short-lived. Then there was also Lyle Overbay and Brandon Morrow's short-lived staches as well, but I just wanted to go with the established ones.

    Didn't Carlos Delgado have a stache with the jays?

      Tony, I believe Carlos has always been a goatee guy. But maybe he did sport one back in his early days?

    You have Dennis Lamp twice but forgot Dennis Debarr. Also John Scott. I don't know if Victor Cruz had a moustache with the Jays but he had a beastly one within a year or two of being moved to the Indians.

      I think I'm up to 122 now with Damaso Garcia, Woody Williams, Pat Hentgen, and now Dennis Debarr and John Scott. Lamp was in there a few times just because he's one of my faves … also Buck Martinez, Cliff Johnson and Dave Stieb's in there 5 times.

    This is the best thing you've ever done. Just wonderful!

      Thanks James! I've officially jumped the proverbial moustache shark with this one.

    My 1983 baseball cards include staches by Garth Iorg and Steve Senteney (although the stache of the latter looks more like the upper lip fluff of a 15-year-old).

      Another couple of additions, thanks!
