Okay, maybe Rollie Fingers. And I’m sure there are some others, but you get […] The post Pay tribute to Jayson...

Rollie Fingers kept handlebar mustache after all

Rollie Fingers figured he would have shaved his signature handlebar mustache by now. He claims he almost did once after losing both games of a doubleheader before changing his mind. He even had a razor in hand that day. Fingers lost twice at Minnesota on Sept. 11, 1972. The Hall of Fame closer had big motivation to first grow his facial hair 40 years ago: a $300 offer from then...

Dallas Braden Got a Tattoo of Rollie Fingers Riding a Dolphin over a Rainbow (Picture)

Oakland A’s pitcher Dallas Braden really got a tattoo on his arm of Rollie Fingers riding a dolphin jumping over a rainbow. The photo was shared on the A’s Facebook page, and they say Braden got the tattoo after doing a commercial shoot with Rollie. Braden has always been a silly dude, so we can’t say we expected anything less. I guess that’s how they roll in the 209. H...
