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.
