Milt Welch

LFHP Autograph Card

Welch played in one game for the Detroit Tigers in 1945. He had two at bats but no hits while spending four innings catching. His professional career lasted a bit longer, as he played in the minors from 1943-1947. He twice appeared in 129 games in the minors, first in 1944 and again in 1946.


Welch is currently one of the 100-oldest-living ballplayers. He is also the oldest person to have played in just one MLB game.
