49 yr. old Jamie Moyer could make history tonight


49-year-old Jamie Moyer could make history tonight
D.J. Short Apr 7, 2012, 3:00 PM EDT


Jamie Moyer was one of the better stories of the spring, successfully securing a spot in the Rockies’ rotation at the age of 49 after missing the entire 2011 season following Tommy John surgery. And he has a chance to make a little history in his first start tonight against the Astros.

Moyer, who is 49 years and 141 days old, could become the oldest pitcher to ever win a major league game. Jack Quinn, the current record holder, was 49 years and 70 days old when he won for the Brooklyn Dodgers on September 13, 1932.

While Moyer understands his place in history, he told Troy Renck of the Denver Post that his comeback is more about showing that he still deserves a spot on a major league roster.

“It’s special to have this opportunity. Maybe when my career is over, I will think about it more. But I didn’t come back for one game,” Moyer said. “I want to make a contribution to this team all season, helping guys as much as they help me.”

Moyer, a former sixth-round pick of the Cubs in 1984, owns a 4.24 career ERA and 267 lifetime wins over 24 major league seasons.

Moyer couldn't do it tonight. He pitched 5 innings, gave up 4 runs, 3 earned, 2 hrs, 1 walk, 2 Ks.

Better luck next time.

Which is odd since he was throwing 76mph heat. Looked like Eddie Harris out there.
