Stars Who Are Over 60

Estimated reading time: 3 minutes

When the Central North Carolina Men’s Baseball League decided to start a 60+ age division, they knew that the crazies that are still playing baseball at that age are special.

It got me thinking about what major leaguers are available for a 60+ division?

Born in 1963 and just making the age cutoff would include.

  • Dante Bichette was born on Monday, November 18, 1963, in West Palm Beach, Florida. Bichette was 24 years old when he broke into the big leagues on September 5, 1988.
  • David Cone was born on Wednesday, January 2, 1963, in Kansas City, Missouri. Cone was 23 years old when he broke into the big leagues on June 8, 1986, with the Kansas City Royals.
  • Lenny Dykstra was born on Sunday, February 10, 1963, in Santa Ana, California. Dykstra was 22 years old when he broke into the big leagues on May 3, 1985, with the New York Mets.
  • Cecil Fielder was born on Saturday, September 21, 1963, in Los Angeles, California. Fielder was 21 years old when he broke into the big leagues on July 20, 1985, with the Toronto Blue Jays.

  • Mark McGwire was born on Tuesday, October 1, 1963, in Pomona, California. McGwire was 22 years old when he broke into the big leagues on August 22, 1986, with the Oakland Athletics.
  • Paul O’Neill was born on Monday, February 25, 1963, in Columbus, Ohio. O’Neill was 22 years old when he broke into the big leagues on September 3, 1985, with the Cincinnati Reds.
  • David Wells was born on Monday, May 20, 1963, in Torrance, California. Wells was 24 years old when he broke into the big leagues on June 30, 1987, with the Toronto Blue Jays.

If you need to round out your team, you can also choose from a few slightly older guys.

  • Roger Clemens was born on Saturday, August 4, 1962, in Dayton, Ohio. Clemens was 21 years old when he broke into the big leagues on May 15, 1984, with the Boston Red Sox.
  • Eric Davis was born on Tuesday, May 29, 1962, in Los Angeles, California. Davis was 21 years old when he broke into the big leagues on May 19, 1984, with the Cincinnati Reds.
  • Don Mattingly was born on Thursday, April 20, 1961, in Evansville, Indiana. Mattingly was 21 years old when he broke into the big leagues on September 8, 1982, with the New York Yankees.
  • Hall of Famer Cal Ripken, Jr. was born on Wednesday, August 24, 1960, in Havre De Grace, Maryland. Ripken, Jr. was 20 years old when he broke into the big leagues on August 10, 1981, with the Baltimore Orioles.
  • Darryl Strawberry was born on Monday, March 12, 1962, in Los Angeles, California. Strawberry was 21 years old when he broke into the big leagues on May 6, 1983, with the New York Mets.

That means we would have a pretty sweet team. But we need a second baseman and catcher… who do we add?
