  • 3B Bobby Brown, now 95, is now among the10 oldest living major leaguers

    Due to some recent deaths among the very oldest surviving major league ballplayers, Yankees' third baseman, Bobby Brown is now among the ten oldest living major league baseball players, ranking #10 in age at about 95 years, 3 months.
    Brown was the typical NY Yankees ballplayer with a winning attitude, who made many contributions to the Yankees heyday of the late'40s and early 50's. Brown played his entire 8 year career as a Yankee (1946-1954; missing the 1953 season for military service during The Korean War, playing in the major leagues at ages 21 to 29). He quit the game of Baseball early to study Medicine.
    Brown hit .279 lifetime, but it was in the World Series that he really shone. He played in 4 World Series, all of which were won by his New York Yankees. (1947 and 1952 VS. the Brooklyn Dodgers; 1950 VS. the Philadelphia Phillies; and 1951 VS. the New York Giants). Brown hit .439 in World Series play (18 for 41 - with two doubles and three Triples) and his clutch hitting turned the tide for Yankees wins in a number of games..

    Brown earned his medical degree and was a practicing physician when he was invited to take the job of the President of the American League. (Bill White, the New York Giants, St. Louis Cardinals and Philadelphia Phillies first baseman was the National League President at the same time Brown reigned in the American League. Brown served as American League President for several years.
