Those old gamers drug the bat up there until they themselves saw the writing on the wall.. They'd rather know themselves they cant do rather than being told so.. I think the Psych term is closure. They left all that was left on the field..Who knows, Maybe Paul has a Ted Williams, Stan Musial and Whitey Ford moment in September,puts the bat into the rack and says..."Its been great boys"...

Klu, thanks for reminding of the wrist injury, how could I forget that.
One thing I remember about Yaz is that he made a radical change to his batting stance in his later years and it worked.
