Other Notes :
Former Phillie Nelson Figueroa ( 48 years old ) was pressed into service in the Atlantic League for the Staten Island FerryHawks, he pitched the second game of a double header for the team he coaches as they were short handed in pitching. He threw 119 pitches and struck out four over a 7-inning complete game. 😳. If Nelson can do it in pro ball, maybe I can still make a comeback in amateur baseball at the age of 62 🧐… nah 😂.
