The Old Men of Summer still play baseball into their 70s

This is awesome!

Not many of the players in the Tri-State 48+/55+ Senior Baseball League are over 70, but six who are will head to national 70+ tournaments: the Men’s Senior Baseball League (MSBL) World Series in Arizona and the Roy Hobbs World Series in Florida.

Call them the Grandfathers of Summer.

I was never any good at sports as a kid, but I continue to fantasize that I'll be an all-star in my age group in the 2030s!

What on earth is "48+/55+"? I need to know if Jamie Moyer is eligible!
