Keith to shave off legendary mustache Thursday
NEW YORK -- The date, time and place have all been set. There's no backing out now.

Mets broadcaster Keith Hernandez will shave off his legendary mustache Thursday at 11:45 a.m. ET outside Citi Field's Jackie Robinson Rotunda. Schick Hydro will provide the barber and donate $5,000 to the Jacquelyn Hernandez Adult Day Health Center in Brooklyn, which helps Alzheimer's patients, elderly and disabled people and is named for Hernandez's mother.

The American Mustache Institute in 2007 crowned Hernandez's mustache the best in sports history. But the former first baseman's facial hair has not been limited to the playing field, making appearances on "Seinfeld" in 1992 and in a recent series of Just For Men hair coloring commercials, as well as in SNY's television booth since the network's inception in 2006.
