Comebacks in sports are common, just not when you're 53-years old and out of the game for nearly 15 years. The elder Palmiero told Ken Rosenthal of The Athletic back in December that he wanted to try to return to Major League Baseball and that he had "no doubt" he could pull it off. The New Jersey Black Sox were in town for a three-game preseason series at Cleburne High School before league exhibition games start May 14.

The 53-year-old will play for the Cleburne Railroaders of the American Association of Independent Professional Baseball.

Rafael Palmeiro testifies as pitcher Curt Schilling listens during a House Committe session investigating MLB's effort to eradicate steroid use on Capitol Hill March 17, 2005.

A four-time All-Star and three-time Gold Glove first baseman, Palmeiro is one of six players with more than 3,000 hits and 500 homers.

Palmeiro never denied testing positive, but said he never intentionally took any banned substances and that a tainted vitamin shot caused his failed test. He had two stints with both the Rangers and Orioles, his only other teams.

Palmeiro first broke the news Tuesday night, telling the Dallas Morning News in a text message that he had agreed to play for the Railroaders.

Palmeiro, who still lives in the Dallas area, is going independent only months after indicating his desire for the chance at an Major League Baseball comeback in his 50s. "Maybe some of those will say, OK, he did it legitimately".

The American Association is a 12-team league that begins its 100-game season next week. He hit.236 with 11 homers and 49 RBIs in 110 games past year for Southern Maryland in the Atlantic League. For those interested in the independent league standings, the Railroaders finished eighth in the league with a 47-53 record in 2017.
