    I've put the Wikipedia Age Rank next to the players name (as of 12/11/17) - Wikipedia Ranking extends to #280. Only Mike McCormick is too young to be ranked.. (Ages are no longer accurate - Calif_Eagle)

    11. Gil Coan 96
    30.Wayne Terwilliger 92
    64. Billy Gardner 90
    100. Al Worthington 88
    120. Joe Margoneri 87*
    .
    123. Ron Samford 87
    127. Johnny Antonelli 87
    132. Pete Burnside 87
    152. Foster Castleman 86
    161. Willie Mays 86 (Hall Of Famer)
    .
    173. Ray Crone 86
    198. Ed Brossoud 85
    202. Ozzie Virgil Sr. 85
    272. - Joe Amalfitano 83
    276. - Bill White 83
    .
    280. - Jackie Brandt 83
    UR - Mike McCormick 79.

    UR=Unranked.

    Ages are as of the posting date 11/9/17, however, since none of the surviving NY Giants were born in November or December these ages are also true through 12/31/2017. - Ranks in parenthesis for the 280 oldest living MLB players as of 12/10/2017.
    Updated to reflect the passing of Red Schoendienst. https://www.baseball-reference.com/p...choere01.shtml

    Updated 8/1/2018 to reflect the passing of Harvey Gentry, who had 4 AB with 1 hit for the 1954 World Series winning New York Giants. (I'm virtually certain he wasn't on the WS roster, and the above comprised his entire MLB career. Wonder if he got a WS ring? https://www.baseball-reference.com/p...entrha01.shtml

      Sadly. we are now down to 18 former New York Giants with the passing of Red Schoendienst Most people don't think of him as a Giant- to me he is first and foremost a Cardinal- but he did come over to the Giants in a huge, typical Frank Lane change-of-scenery trade at the 1956 trade deadline that helped neither team. Although Red did what he normally did for the Giants- hit .300 or so and play a good second base- he wound up going to the Braves at the June 15th deadline and helped them win their first World Series in Milwaukee. A good baseball man who will be missed.

        The above list (2 posts above this one) was updated to reflect the passing of Harvey Gentry who (as noted above)
        had 4 AB with 1 hit for the 1954 World Series winning New York Giants. (I'm virtually certain he wasn't on the WS roster, and the above comprised his entire MLB career. Wonder if he got a WS ring?)

        EDIT: He almost certainly did not get a ring as his entry in the baseball Wiki at baseball reference.com indicates that he was on the early season roster of the Giants in 1954, before the cut-down date. He would have been long gone both when rosters were increased in Sept. and of course before the World Series that fall.

            LHP - Joe Margoneri (1956 & 1957 NY Giants) has recently become the first player born in the 1930s to reach the Wikipedia 100 oldest Living MLB players list. He is currently number 100 on the list. He was born January 13, 1930, so he turned 89 earlier this week.
            On the current Wikipedia 100 Oldest Living MLB players list there are two players who were born before 1920, 97 players who were born in the 1920s, and now he first player born in the 1930s - Joe Margoneri.
            The last player on the list born in the 1920s on the List is Ray Herbert (born; December 15, 1929) He's # 99 on the Wikipedia 100 Living Oldest MLB players list. Herbert was certainly "Well-Traveled". Between 1950 and 1966 he pitched for the Detroit Tigers, Kansas City Athletics, Chicago White Sox and Philadelphia Phillies compiling a 104-107 lifetime record with a 4.01 earned run average. His best year was 1962 when he went 20-9 for the White Sox. It was his only 20 Win season and it was the only year that he made an All-Star team.
