NEW YORK -- Jack McKeon was 42 when he first managed in the big leagues.

That's not unusual.

Bob Melvin was 41. Terry Collins was 45.

Jack McKeon is 80, and now he's managing again in the big leagues.

"I can not imagine doing that," said Collins, now the 62-year-old manager of the Mets. "I know Jack's young at heart, but this is a grueling job. I tip my hat to him. But no, I will not be doing that. I'm going to be playing golf. This is a tough job. To do it at 80 is unbelievable."

Melvin agreed. Asked if he could see himself managing when he's 80, he quickly said no.

Most managers won't. Jack McKeon is.
And Collins is right. It's unbelievable.
