      Congrats to the 49 year old!! He was 49 and 150 days old yesterday when he broke the record set back in 1932.

      And if he continues to pitch like that, he should be looking to reset that record a few more times this year!

        Of course, Satchel Paige won three games in 1953, and there is considerable dispute about his birth year. Baseball Reference says he was 46 in 1953, but nobody knows for sure.
        They call me Mr. Baseball. Not because of my love for the game; because of all the stitches in my head.

          Moyer pitched his first major league game on June 16, 1986.

          That was four days after I graduated from high school!!! I'll be 44 in August.

                  I'm older than Jamie, got out of High School in 1967--but he does well enough to get the Cy--that would really be history!

                        For Moyer to still be pitching, this blows my mind. I never took notice of him until maybe 1993.

                        Imagine a similar pitcher as Moyer had been in 1986, say Jeff Karstens, still pitching in his late 40s. Karstens comes to mind because he is a 30 year old pitcher who is pitching as if he is lucky to be in the majors, very much at the replacement level. In Karstens' case, Karstens would still be pitching in a starting rotation slot in 2031.

                          At 38, he was the oldest pitcher to be a first time 20 game winner.
                          At 40, he was the oldest pitcher to be a first time all star and won 20 games for the second time in his career
                          At 47, he was the oldest pitcher to pitch a complete game shutout, and only allowed 2 hits.
                          At 49 he is the oldest pitcher to win a major league ballgame.
