"Gramps" has finally retired.: After a quarter-century of pitching, Jesse Orosco has finally decided to hang up the glove at age 46. That leaves Julio Franco as the oldest active player in baseball. Interesting Orosco trivia inside...

How many rings does he have? I know of two for sure, the 86 Mets and the 88 Dodgers.

those are his only rings but his clinching of 86 Mets series is one of most indelible images of recent baseball lore

He has just those two, but he didn't pitch an inning in the 1988 World Series. One of the best descriptions of Orosco's age can be found here. More stats:

Sure but none of the new balparks or divisions are named for him. Yet.
