At 44 years and 326 days old, Big Sexy would have been the oldest pitcher in history to record a ideal game or a no-hitter.
Nolan Ryan, who threw a record seven no-hitters, threw one in 1991 at the age of 44 years, 90 days, and also threw one a year earlier.

Prior to Sunday, Colon's longest no-hit bid throughout his 21-year career came with the Indians on September 18, 2000, when he held the Yankees hitless for 7.1 innings.
Colon ended up with a one-hitter in a 2-0 win at Yankee Stadium.
