Browne: Hall of Famer Bobby Doerr dies at 99

From Ian Browne at on November 14, 2017:

Baseball Hall of Famer Bobby Doerr, whose steady brilliance on the field was matched by an unflappable grace off of it, died Monday in Junction, Ore., at the age of 99.

Until his death, Doerr was the oldest living Hall of Famer, as well as the oldest living former big league player.

“Bobby Doerr was part of an era of baseball giants and still stood out as one himself,” said Red Sox owner John Henry. “And even with his Hall of Fame achievements at second base, his character and personality outshined it all. He will be missed.”

Doerr played his entire 14-season Major League career with the Red Sox between 1937-51, missing ’45 while serving during World War II.
