Bill Werber In Failing Health
I got an e-mail this morning from the son of Bill Werber, the 100-year-old native of College Park who is the oldest living ex-major leaguer and the last surviving ex-teammate of Babe Ruth. When I visited Werber in his Charlotte, N.C. nursing home last June -- for an interview, one of the most memorable of my journalism career, that produced this story -- his mind was sharp and his health seemed remarkably good for man about to turn 100.
Unfortunately, according to his son, Bill Jr., Werber's health has recently taken a turn for the worse, and out-of-town family members are making plans to visit him as quickly as they can.
Here at Baseball Insider, we'll be keeping Bill Werber in our thoughts.
