The Philadelphia Phillies attempt to honor the oldest matchup of left handed pitchers in Major League history had to be abruptly canceled. The Arizona Diamondbacks’ 43-year-old Randy Johnson faced off against the Phillies 44-year-old Jamie Moyer. While Johnson and the Diamondbacks won the game, many Phillies fans left with a special prize and others left disapointed. In the right field concourse of Citizens Bank Park is the always popular attraction that allows fans to have the speed of their own pitch measured by a radar gun. As a special promotion for last night’s game, any fan that threw a ball faster than Moyer was awarded a Phillies jersey. Team officials halted this in the top of the second inning after jerseys were won by an entire T-Ball team, a quadrapalegic and Jesse Orosco.
