Outgoing …

Continuing our pursuit of the 100 oldest living baseball players…today we sent letters to: Bob Ross, Tommy Brown, Larry Miggins, Chuck Harmon, John Hetki and Charles “Tim” Thompson. Interesting side note – Brown is the youngest person ever to hit a MLB home run. On August 20, 1945, while playing for the Brooklyn Dodgers, Brown took Pittsburgh Pirate Preacher Rowe deep in the seventh inning. He was just 17 years, 257 days old. His record still stands today. He homered again on August 25, making him the second-youngest player to ever hit a home run as well.
