          After the death of Gil Coan, the oldest living New York Giant becomes Wayne Terwilliger, who ranks as the 10th oldest living major leaguer at 94 years and 5 months of age.
          Terwilliger played 9 major league seasons in a 12 year time period from 1949 to 1960, hitting .240 in more than 660 major league games.
          His teams in chronological order were 1949-1951: Chicago Cubs; 1951: Brooklyn Dodgers; 1953-1954: Washington Senators; 1955-1956: NEW YORK GIANTS; & 1959-1960: Kansas City Athletics.
          He was a Utility Infielder, whose best position was second baseman. Terwilliger had two seasons where he was his team's everyday second baseman: 1950, when he hit 10 home runs for the Cubs and 1953, when he hit .252 for the Senators.

          There are four living new York Giants who have reached the age of 90. INF Wayne Terwilliger 94 years. 5 Mos.; SS Billy Gardner 92 years. 6 mos.; Pitcher, Al Worthington: 91 years, 0 mos. and pitcher, Joe Margoneri 90 years, 1 month.
