"What if I told you, New York City's finest Colon was called Big Sexy?"

As if Bartolo Colon's first career home run wasn't delightful enough, YouTuber Jordan Siegel used it to create a spoofed 30 for 30 trailer. 

The 42-year-old New York Mets pitcher has turned into an unlikely sports hero in the twilight of his career. He has made competent defensive plays to the delight of the Internet, despite a 5'11", 285-pound frame that might appear prohibitive to some. 

And in early May, Colon accomplished perhaps his most heroic feat yet. His home run off the San Diego Padres' James Shields was truly the stuff of legends:

But for real, there needs to be a documentary about this man.
