Oldest Known MLB Player

Do you ever want to know something completely random? Of course you do. I was looking up super centenarians  which are people who live over 110 years of age. While I could not find a MLB player who lived that long, there was a pitcher who passed away in 1998 at the age of 107. His name was Red Hoff and he was a pitcher for the NY Highlanders, who are now the Yankees, and in one of his starts against the Tigers, he struck out an arrogant outfielder. That outfielder was Ty Cobb. I am guessing he was the last living pitcher to strike out Ty Cobb, unless Jamie Moyer did so and I don’t know about it. Here is the only card of him, a T207.
