With 80's Relics Gone, 90's Vets All That Remains

Sadly the era of Major League Baseball from the 1980's officially dies in 2012 with the final seasons of Jaime Moyer and Omaz Vizquel.  Those two artifacts had been hanging on since 1986 and 1989 respectively.  However, their days in the summer sun has come and gone and the veterans from the 1990's are now the decade we hold onto.

The following is a list of "active" players.  Some of them are holding on by the threads of their jersey, and others could possibly retire.  A few are still going strong, but that is a small group.  Go ahead, lay you eyes on the players who debuted in the 90's.

"Baseball connects American males with each other, not only through bleacher friendships and neighbor loyalties, but most importantly through generations.

You learn your first lessons of the rainbow arc all living makes, but that baseball exaggerates. For when you are in sixth grade, the rook has fuzz on his face and throws to the wrong base, before you leave junior high school, he is a seasoned regular, his body filled out, his jowl ripples with tobacco; when you graduate high school he is a grizzled veteran – even if you are not certain what grizzled means. In a few years, the green shoot becomes the withered stalk, and you learn the hill all beings travel by."
