    And now we are down to one. Bert Thiel died July 31, 2020. Del Crandall is the last Boston Brave.

        The Boston Braves are the first relocated NL team from the 20th century to no longer have any living representatives, and arguably the first relocated 20th century team overall if one doesn't consider the Yankees to be the same franchise as the 1901-02 Baltimore Orioles (a huge argument in favor of that being that no 1902 Orioles played for New York in 1903).
        The playoffs should expand eventually, but only if MLB itself expands.

          What about the 1901 Milwaukee Brewers / 1902 St. Louis Browns? Five 1901 Brewers were with St. Louis in 1902.

            Forgot about that

            Anyway, the Boston Braves are the first relocated 20th century team outside of the 1901 Brewers and 1901-02 Orioles that no longer have any living representatives.

            Of the remaining teams that relocated up through 1966, here are the remaining representatives:

            St. Louis Browns: 5
            Philadelphia Athletics: 5
            Brooklyn Dodgers: 13
            New York Giants: 11 (just 24 living players who played NL baseball in NYC before 1962)
            Original Washington Senators: 19
            Milwaukee Braves: 45 (it will be much longer before the amount of living Milwaukee Braves reaches 0 compared to the teams listed above)
