Baseball Hall Of Fame Offers Jamie Moyer Internship
Colorado Rockies pitcher Jamie Moyer made history this week by becoming the oldest player to ever win a major league game. The 49-year-old lefthander donated his cap and glove to the National Baseball Hall of Fame and Museum in Cooperstown, and now they want to give him something in return: an internship.
Following his historic win over the San Diego Padres on Tuesday, Moyer told reporters, “I kind of wish I was a baseball historian.”
Well, the Hall of Fame has offered him a spot in the Museum’s Steele Internship Program. Of course, Moyer actually would have to retire to become eligible for the internship.
“Jamie Moyer has proven that age is truly just a number,” said Brad Horn, senior director for communications and education at the National Baseball Hall of Fame and Museum. “By winning a game at the age of 49 years and 150 days, he’s broken a long-standing record in baseball history. But even more noteworthy in his performance is that Jamie has expressed a desire to become a baseball historian. Through our annual Frank and Peggy Steele Internship Program, we are providing learning foundations and educational opportunities to future leaders in baseball research, among many other Museum and baseball disciplines.
“Jamie certainly has shown the dedication we look for in our program’s candidates, and we believe that Jamie has the stuff necessary to make it as a Hall of Fame historian, with a little hard work and perseverance.”
During his 25-season major league career, he is 268-206 with a 4.23 ERA.
