On Saturday, hefty and elderly pitcher Bartolo Colon clocked the first home run of his career, becoming the oldest player at age 42 to ever hit their first home run. He took a lifetime to round the bases, and the whole thing was like a beautiful dream.

And you know what? It totally works!

Ok. So the whole thing is a little clumsy, but then again, so is Bartolo, so it all works out.
