On Wednesday, CBS News interviewed Marlins manager Jack McKeon, who has led the Marlins to a 15-10 record since taking them over, plus winning nine of the past 11. All at the tender age of 80 in his second stint at the helm of the Marlins during a managerial career that began in 1955.

"Why should experience be penalized?" McKeon asked in the video, which you can watch above. "I did think that no one would rehire me because of the age factor, but no, I'm not too old."

McKeon did notice a change this time around in managerial style, in which he has focused on keeping the team loose, happy and determined to win.

"I'm more patient. I don't let little things bother me anymore," McKeon says. "Losses don't bother me."

Check out CBSSports.com's Danny Knobler on McKeon, who has become the most popular man in Miami.

Perfect website! Write-up completely similar to that of the way in which you'll find it painless on my small mind and also the information and facts are competently authored.

Wonderful story, but the Marlins went 3-23 during the time before McKeon took over, they lost a lot of 1 run games in that time. They were due for a 15-10 run, 9 of 11. Because they ran out of the 10 games straight of losing. They were 30-20 at one time and then their losing streak. They pulled out of it eventually. Anyone remember the Red Sox or Rays start in 2011 ? Well, the Orioles led the AL East at one point. It's 162 games, a lot can happen in 6 months playing 27 games each month, that's in months that have 30-31 days. There is also Spring Training too.
