This thread was in the watercooler section but it seems only fitting that the news of the demise of our oldest living MLB'er would be on the front page of a primarily vintage forum. RIP Mr. Doerr.....Here is his rookie card...1937 Goudey R314 (from the OC website)

With Bobby Doerr's passing, Red Schoendienstist - 94 years old is now the oldest living Hall of Famer. He is followed by Tommy Lasorda and Whitey Ford.

He was the last living player from the 1930's.

No one living right now played in the majors before September 3, 1941 when Fred Caligiuri made his debut for the Philadelphia A's. Only Chuck Stevens of the St Louis Browns is older than Caligiuri (by 124 days). They are both 99

We were just recently discussing Bobby Doerr's longevity in a thread in the Watercooler section.

Doerr played against Lou Gehrig. And made his debut 80 years ago. Quite a remarkable career and life!

God bless this wonderful man....

RIP Bobby Doerr. I was bidding on his rookie card last night. Really sad to hear about his passing, one of the greatest Sox of all-time; the 1940s Doerr, Williams, Pesky + DiMaggio combo is legendary. I was watching this video the other day https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GlwxU0TJ98Y , it is fantastic to see 80 years of Red Sox all together at Fenway.

My prayers go out to his family and friends,

Owen

Doerr and Williams were signed from the same scouting trip. He was the last living MLB player from the 1930s. RIP.
