Yesterday, Jamie Moyer became the oldest pitcher to toss a shutout. He tossed a two hit complete game shutout against the Atlanta Braves. He is 47 years and 170 days old.
Phil Niekro was the previous holder of this record at 46 years and 188 days old. With the win, Moyer picked up victory number 262 in his career. He is now 4-2 this season with a 4.38 ERA.
His good day at the ballpark got me thinking about other senior citizens who put together a good season or performance. To be included on this list you must be over 40 years of age and have done something that is out of the ordinary.
So here we go with the best over 40 performances.
