Rafael Palmeiro wants to pull a Minnie Minoso.

Former Mississippi State baseball and Major League standout Rafael Palmeiro is considering making a comeback in pro baseball.

Palmeiro told The Athletic, "There's no doubt in my mind I can do it".

A four-time All-Star first baseman, Palmeiro played for the Chicago Cubs, Texas Rangers and Baltimore Orioles over a 20-year career, racking up more than 500 home runs and 3,000 hits. But Palmeiro thinks he still has something to prove after alleged steroid use tainted the end of his career.

It's been nearly 13 years since Rafael Palmeiro played in the Majors, but he's not going to let old age stop him from continuing his dream of playing again.

"Maybe 12 years later, I can prove to the whole world that I didn't need anything to have a good career", Palmeiro said, via Bleacher Report.

Palmeiro told Rosenthal the suspension was a "perfect storm that basically destroyed me" and continues to say he never knowingly took any performance-enhancing substances.

"Let me start by telling you this: I have never used steroids, period", he said at the time.

Julio Franco, who last played in the major leagues for the Atlanta Braves in 2007 at 49, tried a comeback in 2014 for the Fort Worth Cats of the independent United League Baseball. Julio Franco now holds the record.

"It would be an interesting story", executive vice president of baseball operations Dan Duquette told The Athletic. Duquette said. "It's like tying your shoes".

The 53-year-old professes to be in phenomenal shape and has been working out every single day with his sons, Preston and Patrick, who both play professionally.

"If I go to spring training with a legitimate chance to make the team, I won't have to go to the minors", Palmeiro said. He completed his first professional season previous year playing 127 games for Low-A Delmarva.
