Useless Info I Find Fascinating


Billy Werber died today.  He lived a nice long life, passing away at the age of 100, and he's a nice slice of trivia.  Not only was Billy Werber the oldest living major league ballplayer, but he was the final surviving teammate of Babe Ruth, as well as the last player to play against Ruth while he was with the Yankees.

Think about that.  Up to today, you could have had a conversation with one of Babe Ruth's teammates.

It's a useless piece of trivia, but I dig it... especially on a slow blogging day.
