Two years after retiring at the tender age of 32, Mark Mulder is still around the game of baseball as an analyst for ESPN. However, he’s also enjoying success in a new sport, having won three times on the Golf Channel Am Tour this season.
Mulder talks about his experiences on our sister blog, GolfTalkCentral. The entry also mentions that he’s recruited fellow former big leaguers Jermaine Dye and Orlando Hernandez to play in Am Tour events.
Mulder was a 21-game winner as a sophomore for the A’s in 2001, but because of shoulder problems, he had his last strong season at age 27 with St. Louis in 2005. He last pitched in the majors in 2008, and he gave up his final comeback bid when he announced his retirement in 2010.
