Jose Canseco Wants To Return To Major Leagues At Age 47

Jose Canseco may be 47 years old and a decade removed from his last appearance in the major leagues, but he insists that he's not done yet.

"In a perfect world, yeah, you'd want to play affiliated baseball with a major league team and, if not, in their minor league system," Canseco said in an interview with Melissa Lockard of Scout.com. "Definitely I love the game. I want to play. I can still hit. If it comes down to playing anywhere, I'd be open to it. I think I've got an invite to Mexico and some independent baseball leagues, but I'd love to be in the major leagues."

Canseco's last apperance in the major leagues came on Oct. 6, 2001 with the Chicago White Sox. He's spent his post-playing days in independent leagues, writing and speaking publicly about his steroid use, and making guest appearances everywhere from "The Simpsons" to "Celebrity Apprentice" to the boxing ring.

Canseco is still interested in playing at the highest level -- and if that doesn't work out, he says he's also interested in a coaching career.

"I know the game so well," he said. "I think that coaching and, at a minimum, hitting instructing would be a good fit. Down the line, when I’m done playing physically, I’d love to manage."
