He spent most of his playing career in Major League Baseball (MLB), entering the major leagues in 1982 and last appearing in 2007 (at which time, he was the oldest active big league player). While Franco was an All-Star and posted above-average hitting statistics throughout his career, he is best known for being the oldest regular position player in MLB history. Franco was the all-time hits leader among Dominican-born players until surpassed in 2011 by Vladimir Guerrero. Julio Franco has hand autographed this Cleveland Indians 8x10 Photo.
