On September 25, 1965 — Another Kansas City publicity stunt makes the great Satchel Paige baseball’s oldest performer. At 59, Paige hurls the first three innings, garners one strikeout, and allows just one hit, to Carl Yastrzemski, in his first major league appearance since 1953. The Red Sox then jump on reliever Don Mossi for a 5 – 2 win.
