Last night, Bill “The Spaceman” Lee pitched a complete game victory for the San Rafael (Pacifics of the North American League’s Northern division), winning the game 9-4. He also batted in the 9th position. Last night’s victory made him the oldest man to start and win a professional baseball game, at the age of 65. He broke his own record set two years ago when he pitched for the Brockton Rox (then of the Can-Am League), where he went 5-1/3 innings for the win as a starter.
Congratulations to Bill Lee on his victory and record:
He last appeared in the Major Leagues in 1982.
