And His Nickname is “Big Sexy”

Bartolo Colon is 5’11” and weighs 285 pounds. He’ll be turning 45 next month, and has played for 11 different teams in his 21 year career.

He’s the oldest active player in the majors, and the only active player who once played for the long-gone Montreal Expos.

Teams would cut him from their rosters, thinking he’d retire. He’d sign with others, even for a minor league deal, before inevitably coming back to the majors.

He’s one of 18 pitchers who have beaten every major league team.

Tonight he took a perfect game against last year’s World Series champions into the 8th inning before it got broken up.

I love baseball. Physicality helps, but skills matter so much more. Just ask BIG SEXY!
