    LHP Joe Margoneri a lefthanded pitcher with the 1956 & 1957 NY Giants became the first player born in the 1930s to reach the Wikipedia 100 Oldest Living Players list. The list now includes two players who were born before 1920, 97 players born in the 1920s and now one player born in the 1930s.
    Born r before 1920 are #1 Tom Jordan (birthdate: Sept. 5, 1919) - a catcher played in the major leagues between 1944 and 1948; and #2 Bill Mills
    (birthdate: November 2, 1919 a catcher who played in the majors only in 1944.
    Those born in the 1920s range from #3 Val Heim (birthdate November 4, 1920) an outfielder who played in he major leagues only in 1942 to #99
    Ray Herbert (birthdate: December 15, 1929) a right-handed pitcher who enjoyed a long career, playing in the big leagues from 1950 to 1966, with a little time out early in his career for military service during The Korean War. Herbert won over 100 games and enjoyed one 20 win season and made the American League
    all-star team one time.
    They are joined at # 100 by Joe Margoner1, the first player born in the 1930s to reach the 100 oldest living players list. Margoneri was a left-handed pkitcher who played for the 1956 and 1957 New York Giants, the last two seasons the Giants played in New York before moving to San Francisco in 1958.
    Margoneri (birthdate: January 13, 1930) went 7-7, with a 4.29 earned run average in his 36 games major leagues career. His career was brief but he did hang around the big leagues long enough to have a baseball card of him produced - a 1957 Topps #191.
