  • The Living Former Browns - To This Date.

    Our sympathies and prayers go out the family and close friends of former Brown Jim Pisoni, who died yesterday. The death of Jim Pisoni on Sunday, February 4, 2007 at the age of 79 has reduced our list of living former Browns to only 59. We are now 1 under 5 dozen, but the longevity of these remaining men is most amazing:

    100 or Older - 1
    90 to 99 ---- 6
    80 to 89 ---- 44
    70 to 79 ---- 8

    What follow is our chronological list, from oldest to youngest. It will updated whenever there is an unfortunate need to do so.

    With the belated news that Max Lanier, 91, also died last week, the loss of Max and Jim Pisoni at 79 yesterday, 2/04/07, has reduced our list of living former Browns to 58. The longevity of these remaining men is still quite amazing:

    100 or Older - 1

      My grandfather passed away Tuesday the 20th. Talked about baseball until the end. He has a great scrap book of his days playing and umpiring.

          Whoops! Matt Batts Has Been Found Alive!

          Thanks to a fellow named Bruce Brown, we are happy to report that our count of living Browns just rose to 58 through a corrected human error. I don't know how I overlooked this great fellow from my own home state, but I did. Until now. Matt Batts of San Antonio, Texas has been missing from the roll call of living former Browns. - Thank you, Bruce Brown, for your indirect correction by bringing his name to light in my dimmer-than-ordinary memory of the St. Louis Browns.

          Here's the new list, by adjustment to the facts:

            One More "E" To Correct!

            I said one more "E" to correct. One can never guarantee it shall be the last for as long as we shall continue to breathe.

            After my numbing, but grateful discovery yesterday that Matt Batts is still alive, his addition to our roll call of living former members of the St. Louis Browns bumped us back uo to 58 members. Today's error discovery simply stems from my discovery that Dick Starr's 86th birthday is not today, March 22nd. It happened three weeks ago on March 2nd. I simply had recorded it wrong and only today discovered the error of my ways when I went to Baseball Almanac for some material to use with what I thought was going to be a timely birthday post. I will still do the birthday wish. It is just going to be late. The corrected error on Starr's birthdate moves the former pitcher up from 17th to 16th on the list of oldest living former Browns.

              Max Lanier

              I am asking a question, not giving a statement on this one. I thought I read an obit in SCD that Max Lanier passed away. IF my memory serves me, this happend several weeks ago. I hope I am wrong. Max, if your out there forgive me for bringing this up.

                Sorry, Dennie, but you heard correctly. Max Lanier passed away exactly two months ago on January 30, 2007 at the age of 91.

                  7/12/07: George Binks birthdate has been corrected to July 11, 1914, not 1916, as previously listed, thanks to new and presumptively correct information found in Baseball Almanac. The extra 2 years of age moves George Binks above Ox Miller into 3rd place among the oldest living former Browns.
