Infographic: The Age of the Yankees

I’m at an age where I’ve started noticing that many professional baseball players are younger than I am.  As a Royals fan, virtually the entire team that I root for is younger than I am, and I actually find myself surprised to notice when a player is older than me.

This infographic is a few years old, but it does present an interesting perspective that I’m sure we can all relate to as fans.

    I’m barreling toward the old Casey Stengel adage “Everybody my age is dead, and you can look it up.”

    And isn’t it ironic, as we slide downhill toward the inevitable, that the graph slightly resembles a gun? 🙂
