    Leslie Elmer "Lonnie" Goldstein was born in Texas and played most of his pro career there. I did a quick White Pages search for Leslie Goldstein in Texas and it indicates that Leslie E Goldstein, age 94, was recently living in Fort Worth, Texas.

    Good luck!

    Well, as a Red Sox, Doerr played against the Babe Ruth, in a way.

    There is also James "Red" Moore who played in the NeL in the 1930s and probably other NeL players from that period still around.

    started a topic Just 4 Players Now Survive From 1930s MLB.

    Just 4 Players Now Survive From 1930s MLB.

    Al Brancato's death a week ago means that there are now just four living players who played in the major leagues before 1940.

    1. Clarence "Ace" Parker - Shortstop - 1937-38 Philadelphia Athletics - 100 years, 1 month. - 94 MLB games.
    Parker is the second oldest living Baseball Player (Connie Marrero is 101). He is also a Pro Football Hall Of Famer, the oldest living Pro Football Player and one of 2 living NFL players to have reached 100 (Johnny Kovatch - about three weeks younger than Parker, is the other).


    2. Art Kenney - Pitcher - 1938 Boston Braves - 96 years, 2 months - 2 MLB games.

    3. Mike Palagyi - Pitcher - 1939 Washington Senators - 94 years 11 months - 1 MLB game.

    4. Bobby Doerr - Second Baseman - 1937 - 1951 Boston Red Sox - 94 years, 2 months - 1865 MLB games.
    Doerr was a 10-time American League all-star and was elected to the Hall Of Fame in 1986.
