Jamie Moyer Continues To Break Every Oldest Baseball Player's Record

Record-breaking old man Jamie Moyer, who legend has it is older than dirt, legged out a two-run infield single tonight, becoming the geezeriest ballplayer to ever drive in a run. Pitcher Jack Quinn of the Brooklyn Dodgers was 48 years, 11 months, and six days when he hit a three-run double back in 1932, so at least Moyer still has another record to shoot for. (Moyer, incidentally, also won the game tonight by throwing six-and-a-third innings of one-run ball, breaking the previous record for oldest win set by himself a month ago.)


Once again, it bears repeating that Moyer accomplished this by throwing no pitch that exceeded 80 mph.
