This Infographic Perfectly Illustrates “That Awkward Moment” Every Sports Fan Experiences As They Age

The White Sox have a roster stocked with veterans (some of them famously overpaid). Yet I just counted and, at the ripe old age of 30, I am now older than 16 of 25 players on the roster. This was a bit jarring.

This simple act, more than perhaps any other since I turned 30 last July, just put my age into perspective for me.

I was inspired to do this after viewing this post at Reddit, which featured the infographic below from Flip Flop Fly Ball.

I’d never visited this site before, but I’m glad I did. Click to see all of their infographics. They are plentiful and interesting.

My favorite comment from the Reddit thread is this one:

This is why so many people want Jamie Moyer to succeed.

Indeed it is. It would be nice, once again, to have someone 19 years my senior in the Major Leagues. Thank you for being you Jamie Moyer.
