  • Oldest Living Major Leaguer Marrero Turns 102.

    Former Washington Senator pitcher and oldest living major leaguer, Connie Marrero turned 102 yesterday April 25.
    In a career path that would seem unlikely today, Marrero stayed in Cuba during his prime years pitching as an amateur and for Cuban National teams until his late 30s. He finally went to the United States in 1950 and appeared in his first major leagues ball game about one week before his 39th birthday. Despite the very late start Marrero pitched mostly out of the bullpen for five full seasons (1950-1954) for the Senators and was selected to the 1951 American League all-star team.
