Julio Franco exiles Jack Quinn to the dustbin of history
by Bob Timmermann
Julio Franco aged 47 years, 7 months and 27 days (give or take a day as I'm doing the math in my head) hit a pinch-hit two run homer off of Scott Linebrink in San Diego.
This makes Franco the oldest player in MLB history to hit a home run. The former record holder was Jack Quinn who was 8 days shy of his 47th birthday when he homered off of Chad Kimsey on June 27, 1930.
