Moyer has Tommy John; eyes return in 2012

For 47-year-old left-hander Jamie Moyer, letting go of baseball is not easy.

Moyer underwent Tommy John surgery today, a procedure that has changed the careers of athletes. In a statement, Moyer eyes a return in 2012, when he would be 49.

“I look forward to the challenge of making a comeback for the 2012 season,”

If Moyer does return, he would put himself in a great position to play professional ball in the MLB in his 50’s. But first he’d have to find a team willing to spend the money on a pitcher with grandchildren for him to reach that prestigious milestone.
