Rafael Palmeiro, 53, wants Major League Baseball chance to prove PED innocence

Rafael Palmeiro, 53, wants Major League Baseball chance to prove PED innocence

"There's no doubt in my mind I can do it", Palmeiro said in The Athletic. "Everything feels better than when I played".

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.

It's been nearly 13 years since Rafael Palmeiro played in the Majors, but he's not going to let old age stop him from continuing his dream of playing again. He famously spoke at a Congressional hearing in March 2005 and, under oath, denied using them. "I don't know how to say it any more clearly than that". Palmeiro actually played in one game with Patrick in the Atlantic League in 2015 and went 2-for-4 with an RBI.

Palmeiro still maintains he never used steroids.

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.

Although most teams wouldn't even consider giving Palmeiro a shot Baltimore Orioles general manager Dan Duquette was automatically opposed to the idea.

As of right now, Minoso, a White Sox legend, is the fourth-oldest player to appear in a Major League Baseball game. "It's like tying your shoes".

The 53-year-old professes to be in phenomenal shape and has been working out every single day with his sons, Preston and Patrick, who both play professionally. Today, a handful of well-known players test positive and serve their suspensions every year and return seamlessly to the clubhouse.

"If I go to spring training with a legitimate chance to make the team, I won't have to go to the minors", he said, per CBS Sports.

The oldest regularly playing position player in Major League Baseball history was Julio Franco, who was 49 when he retired in 2007.
