Plummer Overcomes Injury and Surgeries to Continue in Arkansas at Age 71

(Mike Plummer helping to hold the championship banner...middle)

By Steve LaMontia, Director of Communications

Mike Plummer is an exceptional athlete, who at the age of 71 years ‘young’ continues to play at a championship level for the Arkansas Diamonds while many men his age have decided their baseball fix will come from hoisting a cool one while watching the game of the week on the family sofa.  Mike has suffered his share of injuries and endured countless surgeries throughout his MSBL playing career but I will leave it in Mike’s capable hands to share a brief summary of his trials and tribulations.  Mike is a quality pitcher who wishes to share his story below. We will be featuring additional ‘comeback’ stories in the weeks ahead.  If you have one to share, send it along to msbllamontia@aol.com.

‘I started playing in the Central Arkansas MSBL when I was 42. I’ve been to the Phoenix World Series many times and was part of the 60+ championship team in 2014 with the Arkansas Diamonds. During my 28 years in the MSBL, I have had nine joint surgeries including both shoulders (two times on my throwing shoulder), an elbow, a knee, a vertebral disk, and have had both right and left hips totally replaced.

My last surgery was to re-attach my biceps tendon last year. Last, but not least, I was bitten by a cottonmouth snake this past spring. Needless to say, it’s been very interesting learning to throw a baseball without the use of my index finger. I am 71 years old now and plan to go toPhoenix this fall to the MSBL World Series and play in the CAMSBL next year and in the years to come.
