This Day in Baseball History:
September 25, 1965 > Satchel Paige of the Kansas City A's becomes the oldest player to appear in a Major League game. Paige, believed to be 59 years old, makes his first Major League appearance since 1953 and hurls three shutout innings of relief against the Boston Red Sox. The only player to get a hit off the former Negro League legend is All-Star Carl Yastrzemski.
