Remembering Bill Werber on this Day

It was this day in 2009 that the oldest ex-major league players and last living teammate of Babe Ruth, Bill Werber, died at 100 years old. Werber was a former infielder who played for the Yankees, the Red Sox, the A's, Cincinnati and the Giants. Werber also became the first player to appear in a televised game when he batted leadoff for the Reds in a game against the Dodgers at Ebbets Field. That game took place on August 26, 1939. MLB lost a great man when they lost Werber, RIP.
