Luis Aparicio Admits Hes Dead, Not 67

... Pressured by the string of recent Latin players admitting they are much older than their listed age, Hall of Famer and former White Sox great Luis Aparicio admitted today he is dead and not 67, as his age listed.
... I thought this day might one day come, Aparicio said in a statement read by a representative of his estate. I died in 1994 of a heart attack in my sleep. All appearances Ive made in the past eight years was not really me. I apologize for any misunderstanding this may have caused.
... Aparicio, long suspected with other Latin players to be older than his listed age, was pressured to come clean after many Latin Major Leaguers admitted they have lied about their age. Bartolo Colon is 27, not 26, Mario Encarnacion is 26, not 24, Rafael Furcal is 23, not 21, Ramon Ortiz is 28, not 25, Neifi Perez is 28, not 26, and Juan Uribe is 22, not 21
