Lysander didn't give up on pitching entirely, and eventually found a home in the Senior Professional Baseball Association. In 1989 he pitched for the Bradenton Explorers, leading the league in saves with 11. In 1990, he moved on to the Daytona Beach Explorers, pitching in eight games without allowing an earned run. This earned him a minor league contract with the Toronto Blue Jays, and he pitched in ten games for the Syracuse Chiefs that season before retiring.
Rick's son, Brent, pitched in the A's minor league organization in 2007-08, and for the independent Lake Erie Crushers in 2009.
