Long-time fans of the Nation’s Pastime have known Jamie Moyer’s name for nearly 3 decades. As a member of the Phillies from 2006-2010, the aging ace became an instant fan favorite in Philadelphia for his uncanny ability to defy the radar gun from atop the hill. Adding to his already impressive list of accolades, Moyer has also released a book, “Just Tell Me I Can’t,” which tells the unbelievable story of how he defied time, becoming the oldest pitcher in MLB history to win a game.
“It’s not just a baseball book. It’s a book that I believe can touch a lot of people,” says Moyer, who has recently been taking part in a series of book signings around Philadelphia.
While his pitching career will forever brand him a hero on the mound, Moyer has also been hitting home runs in the community. His newest endeavor – hosting the First Annual Moyer Foundation’s Champions for Children Luncheon in Center City Philadelphia. This event will bring together Philadelphia business leaders, community partners and individuals to raise funds and awareness for The Moyer Foundation’s mission to help children in distress through its signature programs in Camp Erin and Camp Mariposa.
At the event, Jamie will award Phillies Pitcher Cole Hamels with the Jamie Moyer Legends Awards for the young ace’s commitment to success on and off the field, giving of time, talent and treasure for the benefit of others.
