A Visit by Jamie Moyer
Mariner Pitcher Jamie Moyer
One of baseball’s “nice guys” paid a visit to the BBRC Friday, and Jamie Moyer lived up to the billing by charming his audience. He broke into the majors in 1986 with the Chicago Cubs. After three years, he was traded to Texas. He came to the Mariners in 1995 in a deal with Boston. Last year, Moyer won 20 games and carved out a remarkable ERA of 3.43. Based on his win-loss percentage the last several years, Jamie is one of the top three pitchers in the majors. He is in this select group and keeps on performing at age 38. He and his wife, Karen, do a lot of charitable work in this community, as well as others. The Moyer Foundation hosted its second annual invitational bowling tourney last summer and raised $100,000. The money went to fund Camp Aaron, a children’s hospice. MORE
