Reading Baseball commentator Pete Peterson got to experience the passing of his baseball playing glory days recently when his youngest grandchildren from California visited southern Illinois.

In this edition of Reading Baseball, Pete explains how their visit made him re-consider the meaning behind the saying “age is just a number.”

Reading Baseball is a series of essays and commentaries by Richard “Pete” Peterson, author of Growing Up With Clemente and the editor of The St. Louis Baseball Reader.
