When 42-year-old reliever Fernando Rodney pitched out of the Nationals' bullpen in the seventh inning of World Series Game 2 against the Astros on Wednesday night, he made his first Fall Classic appearance since 2006, when he was pitching for the Tigers and was a teammate of Houston starter Justin Verlander. And with his scoreless inning in Washington's 12-3 victory, Rodney -- the only active player who was born in the 1970s -- joined an exclusive list.

As FanGraphs noted, Rodney became the fourth player in MLB history to appear in every postseason round in both the American League and the National League -- the Wild Card Game, the Division Series, the League Championship Series and the World Series (both for an AL team and a NL team).
