Come Sept. 27, Keith Hernandez may no longer be Keith Hernandez. You’ve seen him as the NL MVP in 1979. You’ve seen him in five All-Star games. You’ve seen him nearly lead the Mets to the World Series in 1988 only to fall one victory short. You’ve seen him in “Seinfeld. You’ve seen him in the broadcast booth. But all the while, you’ve seen Keith Hernandez with a mustache.
The mustache has been Hernandez’s trademark for years, but according to Newsday’s Neil Best it will be no more at the end of the season.
BREAKING: @sportswatch has learned Keith Hernandez will have his mustache shaved off before last Mets home game Sept. 27 outside Citi Field.

Talk about the end of an era. Can he grow the mustache back? Of course, but it will never bee the same mustache. The one he has had for all these years will be gone. How can he rag on players like A-Rod if he doesn’t have the stache to back him up? I don’t see it happening.
