Oldest Living Former Major Leaguers

Mike, who draws the cartoons here, and I were having a discussion about the oldest living former players, since Bill Werber, who had been the oldest, died a couple of weeks ago, age 100.

Here's a list of the oldest living former players. Note that #8 on the list is former Cubs manager Herman Franks, who was a catcher when he played in the 1940's. He turned 95 last month.

Other former Cubs on the list are the great Phil Cavarretta, who will be 93 in July, and Lennie Merullo, who will be 92 in May. Joe DiMaggio's brother Dom is on the list; he'll be 92 next week.

Interesting stuff.
