At the age of 47, most professional Major League baseball players are spending their time enjoying retirement. They are reflecting on post season games they may have played in and big situations they had gotten into; They are not usually playing. But this is not the case with Philadelphia Phillies pitcher, Jamie Moyer.
Jamie Moyer has reached many milestones in his career: Last year he was honored for his 250th career win and this past start Jamie reached 4,000 innings pitched. He is showing no signs of slowing down and he is proving to Phillies' fans that he is a pitcher they can count on as he enters the last year of his contract.
Moyer isn’t a “razzle dazzle” pitcher. He isn’t someone that you see blow a fast ball by a hitter in speeds exceeding 100 miles per hour. In fact, most of the times when he is pitching, as a spectator you know that you are in for a game that will go over the 2 hour mark. He is a methodical pitcher. One who knows his strengths, his weaknesses as well as his batters.
