Why are these men smiling? Because last night Barry Bonds, Moises Alou, and Steve Finley became the first trio of 40 year-olds to start in the outfield for a major league baseball team.

Bonds and Finley are both 41, and Alou turned 40 on July 3.

The veterans hit for a combined 4-11 with two stolen bases and two runs scored as the Gyros beat the Phillies 5-3.
