Bartolo Colon To Compete In 2023 At Age 50

One of the most beloved pitchers of the 2000s, Bartolo Colon isn't ready to give up baseball just yet. According to a report, he'll be taking the mound in La Liga Mexicana de Beisbol once again in 2023. At the age of 50.

It'll be Colon's 3rd straight year in the Mexican Baseball League.

He pitched in the major leagues for 21 years, until the age of 45, in 2018. He's a four-time All-Star, including as a 43-year-old with the New York Mets in 2016. And that same year, he gave us the moment that most baseball fans won't forget.  

"The impossible has happened!" Colon hits his first-ever career home run, in his 19th season. 

Colon won 247 games in his 21 years in the majors, with a 4.12 lifetime ERA. He was a Cy Young winner in 2005, and a top six finisher for the award three other times.

And according to MLB Insider Hector Gomez, "Big Sexy", as he became known, is still dreaming of one more appearance in the majors, and retiring as a Met.

And what real baseball fan wouldn't love to see that?
