Centenarian

From BR Bullpen

It took the major leagues until 1973 to produce a centenarian, a person who has attained the age of 100 years or more. Ralph Miller was the first and since then 24 have followed over the next half-century.

The following is a list of former major league players who have lived past the age of 100 years:
