In the short-lived world of professional sports Jamie Moyer is a bit of a legend. He has spent 22 seasons in Major League Baseball and will enter the 2010 season as the oldest pitcher in the game at the age of 47. Moyer and his wife, Karen are extremely active off the field as well. Together they founded The Moyer Foundation which has a mission to provide comfort and support to children enduring a time of profound physical, emotional or financial distress. The Moyer Foundation has raised more than $19 million to assist over 200 different non-profit organizations that serve the needs of children in severe distress. The Moyer Foundation created and funds Camp Erin, the largest national network of bereavement camps for children and teens.
