Re: What age would you consider "prime" ?
Definitely depends on the position you play. Middle Infielders and Left and Center are going to lose a few steps the further past 38 they get. Dudes on the corners and catchers and EH's hang around for years because they can still hit. For myself, I turned 40 in 2002 when the composite bats came out. I hit more home runs and had higher batting average from 40-50 than any other years.
