Probably why most baseball organizations don't recruit 4-year-olds.

What could they possibly have meant? I can't figure it out in context by reading the rookie writing. Is it a simple typo?

My guess: This was the 18th consecutive season that the team's right fielder -- not necessarily the one named, but whatever guys were on the team during that period -- was put on the DL.

An ugly example of a common mistake.
