Hal Lanier is coaching the team at the ripe old age of 69. The former mid 1980′s Astros manager also played in the majors for San Francisco Giants and New York Yankees in the late 1960′s and early 1970′s. In the article Lanier talks about staying young through coaching baseball, instructing in the minor leagues at his age, and enjoying the life of a normal retiree from his Florida home in the off season.
