Maddux and Schilling Keep Me Young
This week both Greg Maddux and Curt Schilling signed deals to continue their baseball careers with their current teams. I was glad to hear it.
Both players started their long careers in the 80s: Maddux in 1986 with the Cubs and Schilling in 1988 with the Orioles. I'm now of an age when players are wrapping up long careers and I was a teenager when these careers began. In the case of Maddux I was twelve when he debuted, but the point is still the same. 20+ year careers are coming and going under my watch.
Next thing you know, youngsters like Chris Chelios will be hanging up their skates.
