This is Moyer's first game against the Reds. Look at the names in those lineups. LOL. HoF'ers, Managers, ex-managers, etc. It just really puts his career into perspective for me.
Hmmmm...how many degrees away is Moyer from the turn of the 20th century?
So far I've gotten Moyer pitching to Tony Perez. And in 1965, Tony Perez faced a 44 year old Warren Spahn (pitching for the Mets). I tried to find a game where Spahn would have faced Ott, but it looks like Ott didn't play much late in his career. Not sure who else was old when Spahn was young.
Also have to think Moyer will face Bryce Harper at some point.
