Okay, so technically he doesn’t turn 50 until November and become both AARP and Sciddy eligible, but last month, Jamie Moyer of the Colorado Rockies became the oldest pitcher to ever win a game in the major leagues.
Moyer first took the mound in a big league game on June 16, 1986 and was paid $60,000 that year. To put that in perspective, shares in Apple cost $4.48.
Here, courtesy of sports information leader STATS, is a breakdown of Moyer’s 26-year career:
• 150 current major league players have been born since his debut.
• He has pitched to 1,419 different players.
• He has been teammates with 631 players.
• Pitched 1,992 hours of baseball games. That’s 83 days, 10 minutes.
Congratulations, Mr. Moyer. Sciddy will be waiting for you come November.
Happy Saving from Sciddy.com.
