Phillies pitcher Jamie Moyer has overcome his many critics and advanced age to become baseball’s oldest player for a third straight season.

Moyer, who pitched a two-hit shutout against the Atlanta Braves on Friday, has had to answer questions about his age for many years, but the 47-year-old is hopeful that this third straight title will finally put an end to the discussion.

“People are saying I’m too old for this and that, but I think this says otherwise,” Jamie Moyer said of his distinction. “I’m the oldest player in the game, and that’s something Babe Ruth could never claim. I’m not saying I’m better than Ruth, but that still sounds kinda badass doesn’t it?”
