83 Year-Old Man Makes Minor League Plate Appearance
Last night, 83-year-old Jim Eriotes led off the game for the Sioux Falls Canaries against the St. Joe (Mo.) Blacksnakes. He took four big swings -- even fouling a pitch off -- before striking out.
The at-bat made Eriotes the oldest man to ever play professional baseball. It was his only at-bat in the game. Sure he struck out, but a lot of the Cubs are doing that anyway.
