Former Oriole Rafael Palmeiro Wants Another Shot At The Major Leagues

Rafael Palmeiro, 53, Considers MLB Comeback 12 Years After Ending Career

Palmeiro said there's "no doubt in my mind I can do it", according to ESPN. "I've take care of myself really well". I've been working out for years.

Palmiero walked away from the game quietly in September 2005 after he was suspended for testing positive for steroids, going down in history as the first Major League Baseball player to be suspended for doping. We debated even writing this blurb.

Palmeiro, who hasn't played major league baseball since 2005 with the Orioles, the year he became the highest-profile player at the time to be suspended for the use of steroids, thinks he can make this unlikely comeback.

Anushka was also seen at the family court in Bandra along with her advocate to pick up the necessary forms for the court marriage. Hounded by the paparazzi, the actress quickly made her way to the entrance of Chatrapati Shivaji International Airport.

Palmeiro has put up some of baseball's best offensive numbers, 13th on the all-time home runs list with 569 and 28th on the all-time hits list with 3,020.

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.

"Let me start by telling you this: I have never used steroids, period", Palmeiro said.

Sexual Harassment Then And Now — Oliver Interviews Hoffman
Then he said, 'I'll have a hard-boiled egg ... and a soft-boiled clitoris.' His entourage burst out laughing. Oliver raised Hoffman's statement that it was "not reflective of who I am".

To this day, Palmeiro has maintained that he's never used performance enhancing drugs. "I don't know how to say it any more clearly than that". Palmeiro is 53 years old. Regardless, Orioles general manager Dan Duquette told The Athletic that Palmeiro's comeback would be an "interesting story", adding, "It's like tying your shoes ..." He'll have a hard time convincing any team to invite him to spring training. He completed his first professional season previous year playing 127 games for Low-A Delmarva.

Julio Franco became the oldest regular player in the league when he played 55 games for the Atlanta Braves and New York Mets in 2007 at the age of 49, hitting.222/.321/.289 with a home run and 16 RBI.

He said he still has something to prove, however.
