Lonny Frey, thought to have been the oldest living Yankee, passed away on Sunday at his home in Coeur D’Alene, Idaho, at the age of 99.
Frey played 15 years of professional baseball, including two seasons with the Yankees (1947-48). A three-time All-Star (1939, ’41, ’43), He played in three World Series, winning the title with the Yankees in ’47.
Tommy Henrich (96) is now thought to be the current oldest living Yankee, although Angel Berroa disputes that.
(C’mon, I had to get one more Berroa joke in there. Had to.)
