Today in Baseball: On April 6th, 2015, the Mets start 41-year-old Bartolo Colon on Opening Day, much to the chagrin of the fan base who hoped one of their young guns, Matt Harvey and Jacob deGrom, would get the coveted assignment. The oldest pitcher ever to get the nod on opening day in franchise history doesn’t disappoint when he gives up one run on three hits, besting Washington’s $210 million ace Max Scherzer in the team’s 3-1 victory at Nationals Park.
