Conrado Marrero Departs Two Days Short of Landmark Birthday 103 and Baseball Loses its Oldest Survivor

Conrado Marrero

Note: On Wednesday morning (April 23, 2014) Conrado Marrero passed away quietly in his native Havana, Cuba, marking the end to one of the most celebrated and tenacious baseball lives on record. The sad news comes less than two days before the seemingly ageless Cuban legend would have reached his 103rd birthday, extending a remarkable string as MLB’s oldest surviving alumnus and the third longest-lived professional baseball player ever.
