45-year-old Colón catches line drive

By Anthony Caruso III | Publisher

Texas Rangers starting pitcher Bartolo Colón may be the oldest player in baseball. Yet, the 45-year-old made a catch that some pitchers, who are half his age, may not have caught.

In the Rangers 11-4 win over the Seattle Mariners, Colón caught the line drive off of Dee Gordon’s bat. The announcer said, “Colón’s catch was beautiful and that’s why he’s called the Big Sexy.”

Colón opposed Mariners ace Félix Hernández on the mound. Yet, it was the ageless wonder, who received the win. He even went seven innings.

Through those seven innings, Colón allowed four earned runs on eight hits. He also struck one one batter.

Colón picked up his 246th win in his career on Tuesday night. He now has the most wins by a Latin American pitcher of all-time.
