the oldest player in the history of sports, Julio Franco. He just hit one out recently.

Congratulations to Patriots2K for beating me to the punch on this one.

Here's some useless Franco trivia: The man entered the 2006 season with 3,921 base hits in all his stops in professional baseball.

The rundown:

618 hits in the minors as a Phillie farmhand.

2,521 hits in the majors with the Phils, Indians, Rangers, White Sox, Brewers and Braves.

316 hits in the Mexican League with the Mexico City Tigres(138 with a .423 batting average in 1999 and 178 with a .437 mark in 2001).

286 hits in Japan with the Chiba Lotte Orions (145 in 1995 and 141 in 1998).

156 with Samsung of the Korean League in 2000.

16 in six Division Series appearances with the Indians and Braves, six more in the 2001 NL Chamopionship Series and two more in his All-Star Game appearances.

Will he get to 4,000 before the season is over as a Met?

Just an addition by me.
He has a 2 year contract with the Mets so he will play in 2007.
He wants to play until age 50 and considering what he adds t the locker room, somoene will have around for another few years.
