He still looked downright young-ish in his days managing the New York Yankees, but there's no apparent distinction between his years with the Arizona Diamondbacks, Texas Rangers and Orioles. Where are the fine lines and wrinkles?
But Opening Day is no time to focus on the wear and tear of a life in baseball. It's about rebirth and new beginnings.
With that said, feast your eyes on Young Buck Showalter.
Here's how the yearbook described him above: "Junior college transfer Nat Showalter captured the SEC batting crown with his .459 average. The Florida native received All-America honors at the season’s end and later signed a pro contract with the New York Yankees.”
This is your annual reminder that Baltimore has a Nat who used to be a Yankee leading the Orioles.
Treasure your Opening Days and your hair, everyone.
