Sad news today. Right-hander Virgil Trucks, who was the oldest living Yankee, passed away at age 95 today according to the team. Right-hander Rugger Ardizoia is believed the oldest living Yankee at 93.
Trucks only spent half-a-season in New York, going 2-1 with a 4.54 ERA in 39.2 relief innings in 1958, his final season as a big leaguer. He spent the majority of his career with the Tigers, pitching to a 3.50 ERA in just over 1,800 innings for Detroit from 1941-1952. Trucks also suited up for the Browns, the White Sox, and the Athletics. He is most famous for throwing not one, but two no-hitters during the 1952 season.
