  • Ray Herbert, 1962 White Sox all-star and 20 game winner turns 90.

    Former White Sox all-star RHP, Ray Herbert turned 90 yesterday, on Sunday, December 15.
    Herbert had a long career, pitching in the majors for 14 of the 17 years between 1950 and 1966. Herbert missed the entire 1952 season due to military service during The Korean War. A trip back to the minor leagues in 1956 & 1957 had some positive results. Herbert became a better pitcher, going 42-25 in 2 1/2 seasons with the White Sox from 1961 to 1963. Herbert reached his career pinnacle in 1962 with the Pale Hose by going 20-9 with an earned run average of 3.27, in his only all-star year. Unfortunately, he struggled to a 7-13 mark with the Philadelphia Phillies in his final two seasons in the majors of 1965 and 1966. he entered the 1965 season with a career 100-94 mark but after his two poor seasons with the some fairly good Phillies teams, Herbert's final career mark wound up at an under .500 104-107 final career mark, with a career earned run average of 4.01.

    RAY HERBERT (MLB: 1950-1966) RANKS AS THE 75TH OLDEST LIVING MAJOR LEAGUER.
    He is the last living player to reach age 90 to have been born in the 1920s. His birthday is on December 15, 1929.
    The next player to reach age 90 will be the first player to reach that milestone who was born in the 1930s.
    JOE MARGONERI, a pitcher for the 1956 &1957 New York Giants, is the next oldest player after Herbert on the list of Wikipedia's100 oldest living major leaguers.
    He was born on January 13, 1930, and he is due to become first player born in the 1930s to reach the age of 90.
