Mid-Life Crisis: Top 5 Current MLB Players Over 40
Okay, they aren't that old, but they are old.
These players are right into the middle of their respevtive journies here on earth, and here's an article dedicated to all those men who are here now, too.
Continuing, these are players who have sustained great careers, and are doing good now. My only requirements are that you are fourty as of this day (sorry, Mariano Riverea,) and that you played in the last year. So, finally, here is the article.
5: Gary Sheffield
The only hitter on my list, he has hit his 500 homers, and is now most likely into the Hall of Fame. He will be remembered for his funky batting stance, where he doesn't stop waving the bat around.
4: John Smoltz
Only pitcher with 200 wins and 100 saves. A career ERA of 3.32, one of the best in the game. When this guy finally hangs his glove up, he'll be in Coopersville.
3: Tom Glavine
Curently a free agent after being given the boot by his former team, the Braves, the 305 win pitcher is among the best in the game. This may have been his last stint with a baseball team, however. We'll see how things play out.
2: Randy Johnson
Perhaps the best lefty ever to pitch in baseball, he has his 300 wins, and the 44 year old is ready for Cooperstown. Although, keep in mind he has had some really good saesons recently, he might stay and play for a while.
1: Trevor Hoffman
Trevor Hoffman is the all-time leader in saves, and already has a spot reserved for him in Cooperstown, New York. Enough said. Number one, no one competes.
