Bartolo Colon

Bartolo Colon did a great service for himself, the Mets and this country on Saturday when he hit a home run in San Diego. At 42 years and 349 days, Colon became the oldest MLB player to hit his first career home run. The pitcher also went 6.2 innings, giving up three earned runs and throwing 62 strikes in 86 pitches, earning the win.

SNY's Gary Cohen had a now-legendary call of the dinger:


But as good as Cohen's call was, this may be even better. The Spanish call on WEPN by Max Perez Jimenez immortalized Colon's home run in the Dominican's native tongue.


In the extended version of Colon's home run moment (by the way, it took him 31 seconds to run around the bases), the Mets dugout is seen actually hiding in the locker room before mobbing the legend.



Colon is currently the oldest active player in MLB (and the only remaining former Montreal Expo). But he is a new member of the home run club.

Topps even created a limited-edition card to remember this date in history.
