Age ain't nothing but a number, unless you're Miguel Tejada.
The Houston Astros pitcher told the Monterrey Corn Dogs when he was signed out of the Dominican Republic in Season 1 that he was 22. But he was actually 24, meaning he is now 30, two years older than his listed age in the Astros' media guide and other baseball records.
The pitcher made his admission after being approached Tuesday by ESPN.
Earlier in the interview, before being presented with the birth certificate, Tejada was asked how old he was. His answer was "29" -- which is neither his real age nor his listed age.
