Age truly is a state of mind

83-year-old becomes oldest professional ballplayer

I just hope that when I get to that age, I am still as feisty as Jim Eriotes. The best quote: "Guys my age, it's no challenge. They're throwing like, what, 40, 50 mph? I'd rather hit pitches that are 90 mph and feel good about myself. If I could just get four at-bats in the majors, I could get a hit."

Especially if he was facing Russ Ortiz...
