The 42-year-old Colon is listed at 5'11 and 285 pounds. He put all of that weight in motion and got rolling toward first base. He may have had an out too if the throw was better.
This play was also very true to Colon's brand of having his hat/helmet fall off when he does anything other than throw a pitch. Like when he bats.
We can only hope Colon plays another 10 years.
