Jamie Moyer 50
2009 Phungo #50 Jamie Moyer
Above is a card of Jamie Moyer from the innaugural Phungo set of 2009. This past weekend Moyer turned 50. This past season he made headlines for several starts he made with the Colorado Rockies in which age related records were broken. Unfortunatley time caught up with Jamie Moyer in 2012 and he was released.
I have not seen an official announcement of Moyer's retirement, and maybe we won't get one. I hope he gets another shot. Moyer is the only player to pitch in the 2012 season that is older then I am. For whatever reason as long as there is somebody out there playing baseball that is older then me, it helps me feel younger - and I like being able to hold onto that feeling.
