Sin_City_Superhero: Jamie Moyer?
INeedAName: So... he was alive long enough to play through one 9-inning game?
varmitydog: Ace Parker and Bobby Doerr both played in the 1937 season.
jake_lex: In addition to his longevity, the former Washington Senator has much to celebrate this year. After a long wait, he finally received a $20,000 payout from Major League Baseball, granted to old-timers who played between 1947 and 1979.The money had been held up since 2011 due to issues surrounding the 51-year-old U.S. embargo on Cuba, which prohibits most bank transfers to the Communist-run island. But the funds finally arrived in two parts, one at the end of last year, and the second a few months ago, according to Marrero's family.Yeah, that'll show that commie Castro! Withholding money from an old ballplayer will surely end communism in Cuba!God damn, the Cuban sanctions are so stupid.
greggm59: To put it in perspective, he was born 2 1/2 years after the Chicago Cubs last won the World Series.
JohnAnnArbor: So. If the whole Cuba revolution hadn't happened, would Havana have a major-league team by now? I'm thinking they would.
Victoly: Minnie Miñoso
