Jamie Moyer: Hustler
Posted by at 8:00 am ET 16 Comments

Randy Marsh, the 1B umpire for Sunday’s Phillies/Pirates rain-delayed matinée, learned one of life’s valuable lessons the hard way — DO NOT IMPEDE THE PROGRESS OF JAMIE MOYER.

In the bottom of the 3rd inning with nobody out and Carlos Ruiz on first (!!!!) trailing 1-0, Jamie Moyer stepped in the box to lay down a bunt and advance the runner. He got down a good one — about 10 feet down the first base line — causing the Pirates battery of Jason Davis and Ryan Doumit to collide, and Davis’ throw sailed wide of the bag at first. So Moyer, highly energetic for a 45-year old, took off for second. The only problem was Randy Marsh was in the way. But instead of running around the umpire, or possibly stopping to avoid him, Jamie gave Marsh a little two-handed, “Get the eff outta my way!”-shove barreling the old man to the dirt.

Moyer ended up on third base after the bizarre sequence and scored on a Jimmy Rollins sac fly to shallow center two pitches later. After crossing home plate, Moyer did a bee-line for the dugout to receive some oxygen and congratulations from his teammates.

Here’s the footage:

    That was the funniest frackin thing I’ve seen in sports in a long time. It was even better in person…and made the 2 hour delayed started worth waiting through.

    This was Randy Marsh’s reaction after being shoved by Jamie Moyer:

    when you guys start making merchandise, there has gotta be a shirt that has “DO NOT IMPEDE THE PROGRESS OF JAMIE MOYER” on it.

    “Move Bitch. Get out the way. Get out the way Btich. Get out the way.”

    That song should be playing on a loop.

    Marsh looked pissed too. Jaime Moyer at full speed is goddamn hilarious. I give him credit for the hustle though. Shit, at 45 I hope I can still wipe my own ass

    Jamie ran like he just took a big spoonful o’ Metamucil!

    I can’t be the only one who thinks a young Jamie Moyer and a young Tom Hanks look eerily similar.

    Compare:

    Jamie Moyer didn’t say “get the eff out of the way”……. maybe you could check your sources… and I wouldn’t say 58 qualifies Marsh as an “old man”…… tell me you have something better to do than to document inaccurate information.

    Humorous exaggeration, this is lm.

    lm, this is humorous exaggeration.

    I don’t believe you two have met!
