A new study finds that healthy people who continue to work after age 65 are likely to live longer than those who retire. But many older adults don’t get the chance, too often tossed aside by employers who can’t see past their gray hair. And that got me thinking about major league baseball, now in full swing. Why? Because often the boys of summer are managed by old guys. Sometimes by really old guys.
Age discrimination may infect much of the American workplace, but not the major league baseball diamond, where demands for immediate success are intense.
