Colon Goes Deep For Mets (VIDEO)
Bartolo Colon does not more than just pitch, apparently. "Big Sexy" made some history on Saturday night, becoming the oldest player in MLB history to hit his first home run. Colon is 42 years old.
There's been plenty of jokes made about Colon's weight, his declining velocity and his generally ugly swing, but on Saturday night, the joke was on Padres pitcher James Shields, who served up the gopher ball.
Colon was almost outdone on Sunday by Mets ace Matt Harvey, who doubled just in front of the wall in dead center at PetCo Park.
