Palmeiro is one of only four players in Major League Baseball history with 3,000 hits and 500 home runs, and he stated in no uncertain terms to Ken Rosenthal of The Athletic that he believes he is still in good enough shape to have an impact as a hitter. "Everything feels better than when I played". But Palmeiro thinks he still has something to prove after alleged steroid use tainted the end of his career.
So while Palmeiro, who played for the Cubs, Rangers and Orioles during his 20-year career, is one of five players in Major League Baseball history with 500 home runs and 3,000 hits, his 569 and 3,020 in those categories figure to stand as lifetime totals.
File this one away to "I'll believe it when I see it", but former MLB star Rafael Palmeiro insists he is working on a comeback to professional baseball at the young age of 53.
The 53-year-old slugger reportedly told The Athletic that he is confident he could still play and finish out his career on his own terms. According to Rosenthal, Palmeiro "does not sound willing to take any sort of indirect path to the majors", which you would figure would severely hamper his chances if he can't prove to big league execs that he can still hit.
Palmeiro still maintains he never used steroids. 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 ..."
"I want to prove to myself I can do it on a high level then walk away feeling good about the whole body of work", he said, ESPN reported.
Palmeiro's son Preston is now a member of the Orioles organization. Today, a handful of well-known players test positive and serve their suspensions every year and return seamlessly to the clubhouse. Julio Franco now holds the record.
"If I go to spring training with a legitimate chance to make the team, I won't have to go to the minors", Palmeiro said.
