Seven years ago, then 42-year-old Bartolo Colon did the unthinkable and hit his only career home run off James Shields on the road against the San Diego Padres.

In honor of the anniversary, Colon threw out the opening pitch for the Mets on Sunday before the team's game against the Colorado Rockies. The fan-favorite signed some autographs before throwing out the first pitch and then took the mound to deliver it to star shortstop Francisco Lindor.

Over his 21-year big league career, Colon owned a .084 batting average and recorded 25 hits with one walk, one home run, four doubles and 11 RBI over 299 at-bats.
