Craig Kusick would have turned 66 on September 30. He was a marginal baseball player. At his best, he was a .250 hitter with warning track power. At his worst, he could hover around the Mendoza Line. Kusick had career numbers that matched a single season by Hack Wilson.
|Batting Average||Home Runs||Runs Batted In|
|Craig Kusick (Career)||.235||46||171|
|Hack Wilson (1930)||.356||56||191|
But what he lacked in skills, he made up for in fashion. The man knew his eye-wear. Times may change, but Kusick found a look that worked and stuck with it.

In 1979, Kusick was still sporting the aviator frames, but now with a red tint.
Perhaps in an attempt to capture the lost magic of his early years, in 1980, with his career winding down, he went back to the 1975 tinting on his shades.
