1993 HEADLINE: Paul Molitor Becomes Oldest Player To Reach 100 RBI In A Season

On this day in 1993, future Hall of Famer Paul Molitor set a major league record by being the oldest player to reach the 100 RBI tally in a single season.

At 37 years of age, Molitor still had it going as he was able to reach the 100-RBI plateau for the first time in his career, and the 16th season of his career.

The 100-RBI mark by a player older than 37 has been eclipsed several times since 1993, including Molitor doing it again in 1996 with 113 RBI at the age of 39.

Happy Anniversary Mr. Molitor!!!
