The Boston Red Sox have been the most-successful franchise in Major League Baseball in the past decade — and there are three World Series trophies to prove it. Two of those championship teams (2004, 2007) had a former Mariners prospect who blossomed into one of the league’s better catchers in the past 25 years: Jason Varitek.
Jamie Moyer, the Seattle Mariners longtime pitcher who went on to Philly to get his World Series ring, spoke with JACK FM the day after he threw out the ceremonial first pitch on opening day at Safeco field. (I teased him about it, and yes, he said he missed his mark.)
The former Mariner has been asked for some memorabilia by Cooperstown to commemorate his record-setting night as the 49-year-old left-hander became the oldest pitcher to ever win a major league contest.
