Wins a pro baseball game at 65, breaking his old record of 63. Unofficial, I think, but look at the line: retired the first 10, eventually gave up 9 hits, no walks, no strikeouts in a 9-4 win. Fastball clocked at 70 mph. If you can throw your age past 60 I think it's pretty remarkable.

Fascinating "article" (not really an article, more like point-form collection of facts and stories):

Great, brilliant guy and very confident in his pitching abilities to this day. One of my favourite things is to listen to him on TSN 990.

The most he ever made in pro ball is $75K/year. That is a crime.
