In 2006, Julio Franco became the oldest player to ever hit a home run in the Majors. Earlier this week, Franco returned to baseball with the Fort Worth Cats.

And the man can still hit. According to this tweet, Franco has a five-game hitting streak after going 2-for-5 tonight.

It was cool to hear that Franco had signed with the Cats, but the fact that he's still crushing the ball at 55 years old is just amazing.
