Hall of Fame gains an amazing mustache

In addition to former Yankees owner Jacob Ruppert — who once employed my great-great grandfather Adolph Von Berg in a brewery a few blocks from my current home — a veterans’ committee elected pitcher/manager/umpire Hank O’Day and 19th century catcher Deacon White to the Hall of Fame today.

I mention all that here because Deacon White had a Hall of Fame mustache if I’ve ever seen one. It’s kind of amazing he wasn’t already in:
