Rafael Palmiero hasn't played in the big leagues since 2005, but he's playing for Cleburne of the independent American Association. This week, they are playing the St. Paul Saints in St. Paul.

 

Coming into the day, he was hitting .296/.406/.506 (.912) with five home runs in 25 games... as a 53 year old.

 

Pioneer Press's Brian Murphy chatted with him about the return.
