Time passes in Springfield

For decades, time has not passed in the Simpsons’ land of Springfield. Oh, a couple characters died, and the Van Houtens got a divorce, but no one has aged. Until this week.

Baseball’s Mike Scioscia, who had appeared in the episode “Homer at the Bat” back in 1992, showed up again this week… and he had aged. He had changed visually, he had moved on in his career, and it wasn’t a case of him being coincidentally another Mike Scioscia, as the events from his previous appearance were referred to. So somehow he’s gotten 18.5 years older… while Bart remains ten.
