ARLINGTON — Those tight hamstrings that have always given Ron Washington trouble might make him feel his age each day when he rolls out of bed.
And maybe he’s more sore each morning than he used to be after hitting countless grounders at Atlanta Braves infielders.
But the engine that has driven him though six decades of professional baseball keeps on revving, and it belies that fact that Washington, the most successful manager in Texas Rangers history, turns 70 years old today.
He will celebrate the big 7-0 in Arlington as the Braves visit Globe Life Field for a three-game weekend series against the Rangers.
