Whether we realize it or not, Jamie Moyer has given the millions of us who were kids in the mid- to late- 80's an active link to our childhood on the baseball field for much longer than any of us could have ever hoped for. He started his first game against the Phillies and his childhood hero Steve Carlton on June 16, 1986, a game which I remember watching as a 10 year-old, if for no other reason because of Harry Kalas' kind enthusiasm for the local Souderton boy's major league debut in Chicago. In a game that more than any other is a bridge between the generations, Moyer's longevity makes him a truly special player, and for this reason I personally hope that he continues to take as much time as he needs to before closing the book on this chapter of his life and "officially" announcing his retirement.Read more ›
"Moyerisms" join with "Dorfmanisms" in the capable hands of Larry Platt to make this a book worth reading, savoring and returning to.
Long live the greatest #50 in Seattle Mariner history and person who's leaving this world better than he found it all those years ago.
Jamie tells about his arrival at his childhood team, the Philadelphia Phillies. His career continued into his early and middle 40s, winning a World Series ring with the Phillies. He had to have Tommy John surgery, which probably should have ended his career. But, as in the title, Jamie said to his detractors and nay-sayers, "just don't tell me I can't. " Continuing his career, he won more than 275 games. While with the Colorado Rockies, he became the oldest MLB pitcher to win a game at the age of 49.
Now retired, he does commentary for the Phillies. He is married and has 8 children, 2 who are adopted. His book outlines his don't quit philosophy and is an inspiration
