Still Playing After All These Years
or maybe the Paul Simon song says it better,
"Still Crazy After All These Years"

At any rate a former Turkey Valley baseball player is still playing
at the age of 58 and it sounds like pretty good, too.  Or, at least
he has been smart enough to hook-up with a pretty good team.  
Tom Bruess a 1972 Turkey Valley graduate from Lawler living in
Minnesota made the write-up in a national tournament game
playing for the Tri Valley Giants against a team from Tucson.  The
bold below is where Tom's name appears.  He apparently almost
tied the game with a line-drive to left in the ninth.

Tom led his team in hitting during the regular season

Here's the write-up about Tom's is in bold below

Mike Samp sparked our comeback, scoring three runs, going 2-
for-3 and stealing three bases, plus three strong innings of
relief. Gary Gavlinski had two RBI and the longest hit ball of the
day, a double in the second inning.  Bobby Warns was 3-for-3
with a walk. Ump calls killed a two-run rally in the seventh inning
that would have tied the game but we have to hand it to their
defense.  The left fielder, battling the sun, made an over the
shoulder catch of a drive by
Tom Bruess that would have tied
the game in the ninth inning. Then the third baseman hustled to
catch Tink Larson’s pop foul
