Former Phillie and crafty lefty Jamie Moyer celebrated his 50th birthday yesterday. The Phillies made a nice video featuring birthday wishes from Charlie Manuel, Cole Hamels, Larry Andersen, Jimmy Rollins, Carlos Ruiz, Chase Utley, Roy Halladay, Rich Dubee, Ryan Howard, Mick Billmeyer, Gary Matthews, Kyle Kendrick, Scott Palmer, and of course the Phillie Phanatic.
Moyer has vowed to continue pitching despite his age and an unfortunate recent couple of years, which is admirable. We here at Crashburn Alley would also like to extend happy birthday wishes to Jamie and we certainly hope to continue watching him pitch for as long as he damn well pleases.
While we’re on the subject of birthdays…
Happy birthday to my homeboy Big Piece aka Ryan Howard.
