Early Life

Baseball Career

Colon landed an amateur free agent deal with the Cleveland Indians in 1993 where he would begin his career in their minor league system.

But he got better and better, winning his only start of the 1998 American League Championship Series and throwing a one-hitter against the Yankees in 2000. He played with the Cleveland Indians until 2002 when he was traded to the Montreal Expos in a package deal along with Tim Drew for Cliff Lee, Grady Sizemore, Brandon Phillips, and Lee Stevens.

Colon later played for the Chicago White Sox in 2003, the Anaheim Angels from 2004 until 2007, the Boston Red Sox in 2008, the Chicago White Sox again in 2009, the New York Yankees in 2011, the Oakland Athletics from 2012 until 2013, and the New York Mets from 2014 to 2016. From there, he signed on with the Atlanta Braves in 2017 before being designated for assignment after only 13 starts. The 44-year-old pitcher then signed a minor league deal with the Minnesota Twins and was called up to the majors where he became the oldest American League pitcher to record a nine-inning complete game since 45-year-old Nolan Ryan in 1992. His last year in the majors was in 2018 with the Texas Rangers.

In 2020, Colon signed with the Acereros de Monclova club of the Mexican League. The season was canceled due to the COVID-19 pandemic but returned in 2021 allowing Colon to make his regular season debut. He announced in 2022 that he would play one last season of winter league ball in the Dominican Professional Baseball League with the Aguilas Cibaenas before retiring for good.
