Stuff that has happened since the last time Jamie Moyer pitched for the Orioles

On September 16, 1995, Jamie Moyer came in and pitched 1.1 innings in a relief appearance for the Baltimore Orioles against the Yankees. The game was called due to rain after six innings.

Moyer has not pitched for the Orioles since then.

However, that might be changing.

So, what has happened since Moyer last pitched for the Orioles?

  • Two players from that game- Wade Boggs and Cal Ripken- have been inducted into the Hall of Fame.
  • A child born that day would now be old enough to drive.
  • The manager of the Yankees on that day- Buck Showalter- would be the manager of the Orioles in the game that Moyer returns.
  • One player from that game is now a manager (Don Mattingly), another is now a coach (Harold Baines, for the White Sox) and another is now the Orioles’ “Special Assistant to the Executive Vice President of Baseball Operations” (Brady Anderson)… whatever that is.
  • Only one other player in that game is still getting a MLB player’s paycheck, despite the fact he hasn’t played since 2001. That player is Bobby Bonilla.
  • Moyer has won 210 games.
  • The man who Moyer relieved, Mike Mussina, will be inducted into the Orioles Hall of Fame this August.
