New York Mets 42-year old veteran righty, Bartolo Colon, did something on Saturday night against the Miami Marlins which thrilled everyone.

Sure the New York Mets showcase young studs up and down that starting rotation of theirs.

If it’s not Jacob deGrom, it’s Matt Harvey. If Noah Syndergaard is taking a blow Steven Matz is coming back. Each and every night the Metropolitan fan is treated to a phenom on the bump.


In distract contrast comes 42-year old Bartolo Colon. Although he comes just as fancy and exciting.

Many times in 2015 we’ve already marveled at the big man slapping hits into the outfield and running on the base-paths while losing his helmet. It’s a novelty act which most of the world has recognized with pleasure.

On Saturday night Colon added to his bag of tricks.

With two outs in the bottom of the sixth-inning, Colon fielded a Justin Bour dribbler down the first-base line. The only possible way he’d be able to throw out the Miami Marlins first-baseman would be to go behind-the-back.

This is exactly what he did.

It was just the top play of the night in a game Colon went the distance in a complete-game shutout as his Mets toppled the Fish 7-0.
