because when you pitch, you put so much weight on one leg/foot in your motion.

And the foot that the bunion is attached to is also likely 46 years old.

When you say attached to, you do realize that a bunion is structural, right? The bump on the side of the foot where it joins the big toe is not like a callous or something on the surface; it is because of the underlying deformity of bone and swelling of the tissue and sac surrounding the malformed joint. Age might indeed play a role, along with heredity. Some people suffer a lot with these things, and sometimes, unfortunately, from the surgery that's supposed to correct the bunion. I've known people who couldn't walk without limping, let alone pitch.

^^ Oh, sorry. Guess I took the OP's "can someone please explain" too literally.
