Ageless wonder Julio Franco makes it onto ‘Jeopardy!’ as clue

Julio Franco

You know you’ve truly arrived as an athlete when you’ve been used as a clue on “Jeopardy!” In Julio Franco’s case, he can now list that along with his accomplishments.

Franco was mentioned as a clue during Wednesday’s edition of “Jeopardy!” for playing in MLB at age 49 and playing pro ball in Japan at age 57.

Franco played 23 seasons in the majors, most notably becoming an All-Star from 1989-1991. He led the league in batting average in ’91. That was 25 years ago. The guy is still playing pro ball. I guess when you love something that much, you never give it up.

And at least give credit to the contestant for getting it right and not going viral for missing a sports question like this.
