    Twins' reliever Alan Al 'Red' Worthington is now among baseball's 100 oldest living players (according to the Wikipedia List) . He was a solid reliever for the club during some of their best seasons during the 1960s, including their American League champion 1965 team. He is 88 - born; February 5, 1929. Worthington had a long big leagues career (1953-1969) with long runs at the start of his career with the New York/San Francisco Giants (1953-1959) and with the Twins at the end of his career (1964-1969). He broke into the majors as a starter with the Giants and has 11 Complete Games and 3 Shut Outs to go along with his 110 Saves and 3.39 career earned run average. He wasn't nicknamed Red by accident.
