Tejada They Come Tejada is Older?

So apparently when Tejada was taken in by Oakland back in 1993, at the time he was said to have been 17 years old, he was in fact 19 years old. A recent discovery shows that Tejada is actually two years older than he has been claiming throughout his Major League career. Instead of being born on May 25, 1976 he was actually born on May 25th, 1974.

This raises all sorts or question on how many major league players are actually telling the truth about there age. Also if your an O's fan like me or Dews you can't help but laugh at this. Although he is producing very well as soon as he was traded he was mentioned in the Mitchell Report and now this.

And Jose Contreras is 45, Orlando Hernandez is 50, and Greg Oden is 109.

I still remember that passport fiasco back in the early 2000's when that Little league grandpa got busted playing IN the little league world series.
