Soon-To-Be Senior Pitcher Breaks Record
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.
