Interesting stat on ESPN

NEW YORK — It really will be old-timers day in the major leagues on Wednesday, when a record seven pitchers in their 40s are scheduled to start.

The New York Yankees’ Roger Clemens (44), Philadelphia’s Jamie Moyer (44), Detroit’s Kenny Rogers (42), San Diego’s Greg Maddux (41), the New York Mets’ Tom Glavine (41), Houston’s Woody Williams (40) and Atlanta’s John Smoltz (40) are set to pitch on the same day.

The previous record of six was set last Friday, according to the Elias Sports Bureau, when all but Clemens started.
