Wow! I was looking over the Cleveland Indians roster here on opening day at “Progressive Field,” and I noticed something:
None of the players are older than me!!! This makes me a grouchy old veteran fan, I guess.
The only one who even comes close is:
Birthplace: Yamanashi, Japan
Height: 6′ 0″ Weight: 195
College: Nippon Sport Science
MLB Debut: 04/02/2008
I’m older by about three months.
I grew up watching this team, through the dread of the ’80s failures of course.
Whew, we sure had some zeroes on the roster back then.
