Cool story, bros.

If the Colorado Rockies' Jamie Moyer pulls off a win this Saturday, he'll become the oldest pitcher in baseball history to do so. At 49, Moyer is the oldest Major Leaguer since 2007, and the oldest to take the mound since 1972. Indeed, he's more than twice the age of some of the guys on his team, and he nabbed a starting spot on the team's rotation despite competition from a pitcher who wasn't born in 1986, when Moyer's big-league career began, notes the Today show, via MSNBC.

But it hasn't been an easy road for the left-hander. He was out all last season after elbow surgery. "It’s been a lot of hard work and dedication, but it takes opportunity, and the Rockies have been very gracious in allowing me to have the opportunity this season," he says. His fastball isn't all that fast, at 80 mph. "It’s not a lot of fire, but I can still get it up there and hopefully get a lot of people out," he says. His 2.77 ERA in spring training—and his status as the active MLB player with the most wins (267)—suggests he might just do that.
