Old-Timers' Day

The New York Yankees celebrated their sixtieth Old-Timers' Day yesterday, especially commemorating fifty years since Don Larson's World Series perfect game. Unfortunately the Old-Timers' game itself was rained out.

It's always fun to see my favorite players back in pinstripes, but some of them were announced with "Let's welcome back a real old-timer." I know this is a term of affection, but it still sounds ageist to my ear. Why not call it All-Timers' Day?
