3. Moyer breaks pitching age barrier

Jamie Moyer, who began the 2012 baseball season with the Colorado Rockies, became the oldest pitcher, at 49-plus, to ever win a game in the big leagues. Things mostly spiraled downward thereafter as went 2-5 in 10 games before being designated for assignment. The Orioles signed him to a minor-league contract and eventually released him when he opted out of extending his stay with the Norfolk Tides farm team. It appears he has retired with a lifetime 269-209 record during 25 major-league seasons.
