    It's interesting to me that there are all kinds of jokes about Latin American ballplayers doing this, because, as Neyer pointed out in his SB Nation post on this, Phil Rizzuto and Pee Wee Reese did it too.  And then he made a point about the subject that I'm not allowed to talk about, which I therefore will not talk about.

    And by "this," I mean lying about age, not identity.
