Here ya go, the Phillies 25 man roster for their All Moustache team. First of all, a few ground rules: this was a moustache only affair, therefore Eric Bruntlett, Jayson Werth, and Steve Bedrosian could not make the squad. However, the players could have mutton chops or sideburns with their ‘stache and still have it considered a moustache (thus Garry Maddox and Al Holland.) Furthermore, we weren’t trying to create some sorry ass moustache team. We made sure to stock it with studs. Therefore there are numerous Hall of Famers, including some of the greatest Phillies ever to play the game. There are also a few utility players we simply couldn’t leave off the team because their ‘staches were simply too sweet. Finally, the players had to be on the team with the ‘stache. Therefore, Richie Allen, who had a sweet moustache, was left off the team because I believe he grew that sweet ‘stache when he went to the White Sox. Yes, Dan Brouthers is wearing a Detroit uniform, but he had a stache with the Phillies. And good news, there may be a new addition to the team soon. Clearwater outfielder Brian Gump is sporting a sweet moustache these days. Who did we miss? Let us know in the comments. And if you enjoy the video, please click “Like” below. Thanks!
