Baltimore Orioles Jesse Orosco set a major league record by pitching in his 1,072nd game, breaking a tie with Dennis Eckersley atop the career list. The 42-year-old Orosco took the mound with two outs in the seventh inning of Baltimore’s 8-3 victory over Minnesota at Camden Yards. Orosco was originally drafted by Minnesota in 1978 but did not pitch for them until 2003 which was his 24th and final big league season. Orosco played for 9 different major league organizations, some more than once. Orosco remains the all-time leader in games pitched with 1,252, in all those games, Orosco had just 4 starts. Jesse Orosco also has the rare distinction of playing in the major leagues in four different decades. To see a nice recap of his 24 year career stop by Simply Baseball Notebook.
