Chatting it up with former Phillies pitcher Jamie Moyer and writer Larry Platt

September 11, 2013

Guests:  Jamie Moyer and Larry Platt

Former Phillies pitcher JAMIE MOYER made history in 2012, when at age 49 playing for the Colorado Rockies, he became the oldest major league pitcher to win a game. As a leftie, Moyers is known for his three trademark pitches – slow, slower and slowest – but over 25 years playing ball he proved that you didn’t have to throw hard to win. His record leading the team in wins during the Phillies 2008 champion season –  the team’s first in 28 years — will forever cement his legacy as a hero in the City of Brotherly Love. JAMIE MOYER’s new memoir, Just Tell Me I Can’t: How Jamie Moyer Defied the Radar Gun and Defeated Time, is co-written by Philadelphia journalist LARRY PLATT.
