Re: 40 the new 30 in major league baseball
Why is that? The reasons vary. Advancements in medicine. A focus on nutrition. Year-round training. The dangling carrot of multimillion dollar contracts has made long-term fitness more profitable than ever for high-caliber athletes. All of that has combined to make 40 the new 30 in baseball.
It just makes you wonder how players of the past would have performed had they spent the offseason training instead of working a regular job.
