The oldest living former major league baseball player doesn’t live in the United States, but in Cuba.
His name is Conrado Marrero, but he was Connie Marrero when he pitched for the Washington Senators in the early 1950s. Today Marrero is blind and unable to walk, and next month he’ll be 101 years old.
