Satchel Paige (in the Major League)
Twelve years after making appearances in the All-Star games of 1952-53, Satch at the dubious age of 59, pitched three innings for the A's to become the oldest man to pitch in a major league game.
At the age of fifty-nine, Satchel Paige became the oldest player in the major leagues.

On June 19, 1999, Ted 'Double Duty' Radcliffe became the oldest player ever to appear in a professional game. The 96-year-old took the field in the uniform of the Schaumburg (IL) Flyers in an actual Northern League game against the Fargo-Moorhead Redhawks. Radcliffe was born July 7, 1902. Fargo-Moorehead won 10-6.
