Jamie Moyer Released Six Months Prior To Turning 50

Jamie Moyer turns 50 in NovemberAgeless southpaw Jamie Moyer was released by the Colorado Rockies this week, after compiling a 2-5 record, with an ERA of 5.70. The 49-year-old started 10 games for Colorado this season, becoming the oldest pitcher ever to record a win in the Major Leagues.

His career record currently stands at 269-209.

No truth to the rumor that the Rockies were fearful of a potential AARP Magazine cover jinx, similar to the unfortunate fates many athletes have endured after adorning the covers of Sports Illustrated and/or the Madden NFL videogame.

The Moyer story has been a topic of conversation amongst the publications of the 40-million-member, 50 years and older organization.

Remember, Moyer turns 50 come November.
