And Connie makes three…

marerro

Word arose today of the passing of Cuban baseball pitcher Connie Marrero, known as the oldest living Major League Baseball player, at the age of 102. Marrero played much of his career in his home country, but made the majors at age 38 and pitched five years for the Washington Senators, becoming a fan favourite and earning a spot on the American League all-star team in 1951. He was also Logan’s 1st round pick and today became his third score of the season, earning 25 base points for age plus a six point 2nd quarter bonus. This gives Logan a total of 86 points, now a mere nine behind Tom as both competitors distance themselves from the rest of the field.
