Éric Gagné has not pitched in Major League Baseball since the 2008 season. Now, the 41-year-old has an itch to come back.
He is attempting a comeback. The former Los Angeles Dodgers closer has not pitched in a spring training since 2010.
However, he has been throwing bullpen sessions as he plans to play for Team Canada in the World Baseball Classic. He says that his fastball is in the 90s mph.
He also still has his trademark changeup that made him tough to go against when he was on his game.
“I feel great. It’s almost scary,” Gagné said.
He has already had throwing sessions with the San Diego Padres and the Arizona Diamondbacks.
It is definitely a long shot if he is able to pitch in the Majors again. But you cannot deny his effort to never give up on his dreams of being a 41-year-old Major Leaguer.
