    Players are added to the Wikipedia List of oldest living players on their 88th birthday. OF- Tommy Brown was just added to the list today since he turns 88 today - (12/6/2015). Brown was a Phillie in 1951 and 1952 and he was in the majors off and on from 1944 to 1954. As of this date he ranks as the 123rd oldest currently living MLB player.

    Since the original posting of this list there has been just one death (pitcher, Jack Spring) among 123 players over the last six months among former Phillies ranging in age from their early 70s to their late 90s. That seems rather remarkable to me.
