Report: 92-year-old Wants To Manage In The Majors

He hasn't managed in the majors in 12 years, but now, at the ripe "young" age of 92, a legendary, World Series-winning manager of the past wants one more game. 

A report out of Miami is that Jack McKeon, who took the Marlins to the world championship in 2003 (when he was a spry 72), wants back into a dugout. But there is a method to his madness. 

According to Craig Mish of the Miami Herald, McKeon "would love to manage one more game to become the oldest manager in MLB history."

McKeon managed until age 80, but he retired a distant second in the annals of baseball to the legendary Connie Mack, who managed until the age of 87. Mack managed the Philadelphia Athletics from 1901 to 1950. Safe to say that that 50-year consecutive streak won't be broken anytime soon. 

Tony La Russa, in case you were wondering, became the 3rd-oldest earlier this season, at the age of 77. 

The report in the Herald says that McKeon had an agreement with previous Marlins owner Jeffrey Loria to come back and manage one more game in his 90s. Loria, however, has since sold the team to Bruce Sherman. It's unknown if he'll honor that agreement. 

McKeon began his managerial career as a 42-year-old in 1973 with the Royals. He has a lifetime 1,051-990 (.515) record. But the highlight was undoubtedly the 2003 Marlins World Series.
