The latest in this group is Bob Bailey, a 17-year veteran who made his debut with the Pittsburgh Pirates in 1962 at the age of 19. He went on to play for the LA Dodgers, Montreal Expos, Cincinnati Reds, and Boston Red Sox, compiling a .257 batting average with 189, 773 RBIs in 1,931 games.

Bailey died yesterday in Las Vegas at the age of 75. Here’s an obituary from the Long Beach Press Telegram.
