The 2023 Major League, which is gradually heating up with the start of the demonstration game. With several players born in the 2000s already born, who is the oldest?
On the 2nd (Korean time), MLB.com, the official website of the Major League Baseball, introduced the 10 oldest players as of March 31, the opening day of the 2023 season.
The oldest active player was Rich Hill (43, Pittsburgh Pirates). Hill was born on March 11, 1980. This makes Hill the only 43-year-old player as of Opening Day.
Hill was Miller’s oldest active pitcher last year with Albert Pujols (born January 16), the same age as him, but became the oldest active player in the 2023 season.
Next, Nelson Cruz (42, San Diego Padres), who is the same age as Hill but whose birthday is July 1, went up. Hill and Cruise both debuted in 2005.
Adam Wainwright (41), who announced his retirement after the 2023 season, continued to rise to third place. Wainwright was born on April 30, 1981.
In fourth place, Justin Verlander (40, New York Mets), born on February 20, 1983, still throws a powerful ball. Currently, there are no players born in 1982 in the major leagues.
Miguel Cabrera (39, Detroit Tigers), born on April 18, 1983, who virtually booked an induction into the Hall of Fame along with Verlander, was ranked fifth. 슈퍼벳 토토
