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.

    It’d be ironic if Orlando Hernandez and Jermaine Dye were paired together. El Duque threw the pitch that Dye swung at when he broke his leg.

      Nope, sorry Clemens broke Dye’s leg. While crafty, El Duque never threw hard enough to break a bat, let alone a leg

        It was El Duque, Dye broke his leg (shin) fouling the ball off it. Here’s the boxscore from bref:

        Bottom of the 3rd, Athletics Batting, Behind 0-4, Yankees’ Orlando Hernandez facing 2-3-4
        Ron Gant pinch hits for Jermaine Dye (RF) batting 4th

        Clemens also pitched G5, while Dye’s injury happened in G4
