Cuba’s former MLB star Marrero turns 102 BBC News
The oldest living Major League Baseball player, Connie Marrero turned 102 today. He played for the Washington Senators in the 1950s. He went 39-40 with three winning seasons. His stats from Baseball Reference.

Marrero recently got a lump sum in lieu of the pension he never got because he stayed in his native Cuba after the revolution. He’s not doing too well, but sports a curly W cap and a “CUBA” t-shirt in the style of the Chicago Cubs in the video that is included in the story linked above.
