Bartolo Colon was recognized by the Guinness World Records before tonight’s game, for becoming the oldest player in major league history to hit his first major league home run at the tender age of 42 years and 349 days. Colon had accomplished the feat back on May 7th at San Diego off of Padres pitcher James Shields. Colon is having an exceptional year thus far as he went 2-0 to earn co-NL Player of the Week honors for the week of May 2-7. He also passed Pedro Martinez for the second-most wins by a Dominican-born pitcher on May 3rd. Congratulations to Big Sexy!
