Jamie Moyer going into Mariners Hall of Fame | MLB.com

Crazy.

At the age of 30, with a 34-54 record in the big leagues and having spent the bulk of the 1991 and ‘92 seasons in the Minor Leagues, Moyer thought it might be time to get on with life outside of baseball. Digger Phelps, his father-in-law, didn’t agree.
....
Moyer finished his career with the Rockies in 2012 at the age of 49, and he compiled a 269-209 career record, 35th on the all-time wins list. And he did the heavy lifting after turning 30.

His 235 victories tie him with another former Mariners pitcher, Randy Johnson, for fifth on the all-time list for wins at the age of 30 and older, which is three behind Gaylord Perry, according to Baseball-Reference.com. He’s the only member of the Top 10 on that list not enshrined in Cooperstown.
