... Jamie Moyer [is] the second-oldest man to start a game in Major League Baseball's long history [49 years, 141 days], and the oldest to start more than once.Moyer was credited with the loss last night against the Astros. His next win will make him the oldest pitcher to ever record a victory. Jack Quinn (1932 Dodgers) currently holds the current record at 49 years, 74 days.
In 1965, Satchel Paige started one game for the Kansas City Athletics. He was 58 years old, and pitched three scoreless innings against the Boston Red Sox. But that was obviously a stunt; it was Paige's first appearance in the majors since 1953, and would be his last.
Aside from Paige, the oldest major-league starter was Phil Niekro, 48 when he made 26 starts in 1987.
