One of the best players in Red Sox history, Bobby Doerr, passed away Monday at the age of 99.
Doerr was the oldest living major league player prior to his passing. He is the only member of the National Baseball Hall of Fame to live to be 99 years old.
The second baseman played each of his 14 seasons with the Red Sox (1937-44, 1946-51) before retiring at age 33 due to a back injury. He also served as a scout for the Red Sox from 1957-66, as well as a first base coach and hitting instructor from 1967-69
A nine-time All-Star, Doerr batted .288 with 2,042 hits and 223 home runs, which at the time of his retirement was the third-highest home run total amassed by a second baseman. He still ranks in the top 10 among Red Sox players all-time in most offensive categories, including games, runs, hits, singles, doubles, triples, home runs, RBI, walks, extra-base hits, total bases, and times on base.

I think that's a question of when, not if.
The good thing about science is that it's true whether or not you believe in it.
