MLB: New York Mets at Kansas City Royals Denny Medley-USA TODAY Sports

The Royals have gone through many youth movements, but a fair amount of geezers have played in a Royals uniform as well. The team has frequently brought in crusty old veterans in to provide leadership in the clubhouse and guide the young whippersnappers into shape.

Some of these players were great players who stuck around Kansas City until the end of their careers. Others are journeymen who somehow stuck around in the big leagues for their twilight years. The year represented is their oldest year in a Royals uniform.

There have been 26 players who played their age-38 season or older for the Royals. How many can you name?
