As I received a lot of hits on this story I thought I would re-post the story.
Long time Washington baseball fans will remember the name Jim Kaat. Jim Kaat was signed by the Washington Senators as an amateur free agent in 1957. The 20 year-old Kaat made his debut on August 2, 1959. With Washington Jim Kaat would go 1-7 in ’59 and ’60.
At the end of the 1960 season the Senators and Jim Kaat moved to Minnesota and became the Minnesota Twins. Jim Kaat will play 25 seasons in the major league and will win 283 and lose 237 games during his career.
Now the 73 year-old Kaat has written a letter to Stephen Strasburg. View the video to see what Kaat has to say to Strasburg.
