It's been nearly 13 years since Rafael Palmeiro played in the Majors, but he's not going to let old age stop him from continuing his dream of playing again.
Julio Franco, played 55 games in the majors in 2007, at age 48. He'll have a hard time convincing any team to invite him to spring training. "If you can hit, then you can hit".
Palmeiro isn't interested in going to play overseas or for an independent league team to prove he's worthy of a chance with an MLB team. He completed his first professional season past year playing 127 games for Low-A Delmarva. Another son, Patrick, played three seasons in the Chicago White Sox organization and previous year played for the independent Atlantic League's Southern Maryland Blue Claws.
Rafael Palmeiro believes he has more to offer the game of baseball, and more to prove as well. Palmeiro went 2-for-4. But a comeback seems mighty unlikely.
As of right now, Minoso, a White Sox legend, is the fourth-oldest player to appear in a Major League Baseball game. Palmer quickly ended his comeback. He is also absent from the Orioles Hall of Fame despite his numbers in an O's uniform. Palmeiro has been penalized by the voters because of his failed steroid test, and in his fourth year of eligibility, he fell off the ballot after failing to receive the required 5 percent of the vote.
