Bartolo Colon Jersey From First Home Run
Date: May 7, 2016
When Bartolo Colon launched a 2-run homer in a game against the San Diego Padres, he made MLB history by becoming the oldest player to hit his first career home run. Colon was less than three weeks from his 43rd birthday. In addition to the MLB record, the pitcher also earned the win in a 6-3 victory over the Padres on the road.
