The forever boys: the bittersweet world of major league baseball as seen through the eyes of the men who played one more time
An athlete dies two deaths one at the end of his life, the other at the finish of his days on the playing field. But in November, 1989, 30 ex-major leaguers joined the St. Petersburg Pelicans and got a shot at a new life in the Senior Professional Baseball Association, a Florida league for players 35 years of age and older. Here is their story, from the bestselling author of Balls and Personal Fouls. 16 pages of photos.
