I hope to be playing in the over 30 leagues until I'm 60 provided my body holds up(knock on wood).

The battle isn't so much that you are getting older and slower....it's all the responsibility that comes with age. I'm 28 and I can't play anymore because my hours are crazy. If you are working 70 hours per week your body just isn't going to be the same and that is what scares me.

Yep. I think the fact that people don't have time is what kills the athlete inside =/ If I had time to train everyday I could see myself playing well until 50+. Sitting in a desk all day shortening hip flexors, weakening lower back and core, and losing flexibility really sucks when you want to play ball.
