Miami Herald writer Dan Le Batard today profiles Andre Dawson. But it wasn’t Le Batard’s description of Dawson’s 12 knee surgeries that caught my eye. It was this tidbit:
Dawson, 53, works now as an assistant to the Marlins general manager, but he can still be seen doing at least an hour of cardio every day, even on that one good knee. He tested his body fat against the players last season just for the heck of it. Four percent. Best on the entire team.
Four percent body fat? At age 53?
Forget the Hall of Fame. Dawson belongs in Ripley’s Believe it or Not.
