43 year-old MLB pitcher makes All-Star team
By Bill Littlefield
Boston, MA – On Sunday, it was announced that pitcher Tim Wakefield of the Red Sox had made his first All-Star Team. Wakefield, a knuckleballer who will be forty three next month, began his career with the Pittsburgh Pirates and has been a versatile and durable pitcher for Boston since 1995. Wakefield will take the field for the American League All-Stars in St. Louis on Tuesday (July 14th) and commentator Bill Littlefield feels that circumstance is worthy of note.
