Are you familiar with the phrase "you're not getting any younger"? I'm sure those words were swirling around in Tom Wright's head when he decided to try to become a Detroit Tiger. See how things worked out for this 54 year-old, would be star pitcher.



The would be Detroit Tiger shows off his knuckle ball style of pitching in a video that he sent to most of the major league teams.

The Tigers must have seen some potential in the 54 year-old pitcher. Tom Wright has been invited to try out for the team this coming Monday, March 4 at their spring training facility in Lakeland, Florida.

Do you think that a 54 year-old pitcher can still be an asset to a major league baseball team? If you watched Tom's video, did you see any skills that the Tigers could use for the 2013 season?
