I felt like he was talking about whether one's drop in their own ability due to age ever becomes too stark and depressing to carry on playing. Even then, I think many, many ballplayers continue on, just as you mentioned, but I see where he's coming from. I imagine it's a heck of a shot to the ego to no longer be able to do things on the court you knew you once never had to think twice about; to not be able to outrun or outjump people you used to be able to dominate at half speed.
