53-Year Old Rafael Palmeiro Considering MLB Comeback

53-Year Old Rafael Palmeiro Considering MLB Comeback

"I've take care of myself really well".

The former Texas Rangers and Baltimore Orioles star told The Athletic's Ken Rosenthal on Tuesday he's considering resurrecting his Major League Baseball career at age 53.

Regardless of what you think of him and the PED mess, he's one of only five players to collect 3,000 hits and 500 home runs. "Everything feels better than when I played". He was suspended after testing positive for anabolic steroids in 2005, leading to his retirement.

All told, it's an extreme long shot Palmeiro makes it back to the majors, but he told Rosenthal he'd love the opportunity to "walk away feeling good about the whole body of work" after proving he could still play at the sport's highest level. What made it worse was when Palmeiro testified at a Congressional hearing about steroids in baseball and said, "Let me start by telling you this: I have never used steroids - period". Palmeiro, who played in the majors between 1986 and 2005, believes he's fit and talented enough to earn a roster spot. "I don't know how to say it any more clearly than that".

Palmeiro, who retired quietly in September 2005 after the 10-game suspension, has always maintained that he never used steroids.

"It would be an interesting story", Baltimore general manager Dan Duquette said, ESPN reported. "If you can hit, then you can hit".

Now after so many years away from the game, he wants a chance to prove he can do it clean and prove he never did steroids.

Meanwhile, Palmeiro's youngest son, Preston, is now a member of the Orioles minor league system. The 22-year-old plays for the Class-A affiliate, but dad doesn't plan on spending any time in the minors. Julio Franco now holds the record.
