We’ll let the Charlotte Stone Crabs explain…
The Charlotte Stone Crabs will host Rocco Baldelli Moustache Night on Wednesday, August 4 as a celebration of the fantastic facial hair display that currently sits atop the outfielder’s upper lip.
Baldelli…arrived in Port Charlotte with a respectable moustache that has since transformed into arguably the best moustache in the Minor Leagues if not all of professional baseball. His particular style most likely falls under the “chevron” moustache category popularized by “Mr. Baseball” himself Tom Selleck, but if his current growth pattern continues, a definite “horseshoe” moustache could be on the way for the former first round draft pick.
As a tribute to the sheer awesomeness of Baldelli’s facial hair, the Stone Crabs are making a special offer to his fellow moustached brethren: all fans with a naturally-grown moustache who purchase a ticket to the game on Wednesday will receive a free team hat and a free ticket to Saturday’s matchup (August 7) against the Lakeland Flying Tigers that features a post-game fireworks show.
If the Stone Crabs are honoring Rocco’s mustache with its own night, certainly a Stone Crabs Offices commercial can’t be too far behind.
Oh and in case you were wondering who will throw out the first pitch…
Hulk Hogan is invited to throw out a ceremonial first pitch, so if you see him, please let him know.
Of course he is.
