      Wally Westlake of the 1956 phillies - current age: About 98 years and 1 month, is now the fourth oldest currently living major leaguer.
      He's the second oldest Phillies player who ever lived, behind only 1940 Phillie, ,Al Monchak (1917-2016), who lived to be 98 years, 171 days of age
      (about 98 years and 5 1/2 months),.

        March 19, 2019:: Chuck Harmon, an Outfielder/First Baseman, one of the first African-Americans to play for the Phillies (1957) passed away at the age of 94.
        Harmon was a great athlete. He was a key member of the 1942-1943 University of Toledo basketball team that got to the NIT finals. Harmon had a four-year stay in the major leagues, playin for the Cincinnati Reds (1954-1956); St. Louis Cardinals (1956-19570 and the Phillies (1957) . Harmon was nicknamed "Three Gloves" by his Reds teammates, because besides being a competent outfielder and first baseman he was also the team's "Emergency Catcher"....hence the nickname "Three Gloves" because he needed a different type of glove at each position and always had three gloves ready at Cincinnati's Crosley Field and he always took these three different types of gloves with him on road trips. Harmon was as versatile as he was athletic .
