  • Ace Parker, former Phil. Athletics player, passes away

    Ace Parker was one of the oldest living major leaguers - and one of the last remaining players from the 1930s -at the time of his passing. He spent two years with Philadelphia, 1937 and 1938, and played 94 games. He is also a member of the Pro Football Hall of Fame.

    Clarence McKay “Ace” Parker, a member of the Pro Football Hall of Fame and arguably the greatest, most versatile athlete in the history of Hampton Roads, died earlier today. He was 101 and had been hospitalized since late October with pulminary problems.

    With the death of Ace Parker, this leaves Bobby Doerr as the last living major league to play against Lou Gehrig.
