  1. The Mustache Rides On

    Sal Fasano is headed north of the border, having signed a minor league contract with the Blue Jays. He will be invited to try to win a roster spot with the club in spring training. I can’t remember a player as average as Fasano becoming so popular with Phillies fans, with the backup catcher even…

  2. Bobby & Sal, Together at Last

    Jul 30, 2006, 11:48 PM EDT

    That may be a frown and not a Fu Manchu after this weekend. It’s a sad day for mustached men everywhere: Sal Fasano, one of the few uplifting stories of this sorry Phillies season, was designated for assignment over the weekend.  Despite becoming a fan favorite, the hard working journeyman catcher’s numbers just didn’t impress…

    On Saturday I wrote about Sal Fasano and his new following known as Sal’s Pals and in the end of my write up I encouraged the readers to write in to send photos and stories about the bunch.  Tom Dudzic came through.  Tom is one of the founders of Sal’s Pals and sent in some…

  7. Sal’s Pals More Entertaining Than Phillies

    Apr 22, 2006, 12:31 AM EDT

    Sal Fasano is Italian, looks like a trash man, has a Fu Manchu and therefore will be beloved by Philadelphia more than Bobby Abreu, one of the best hitters in baseball, ever will. Sal loves his new found glory as the man with a mustache: “It pumped me up,” Fasano said Monday before the Phillies…
