Bobby Doerr, Red Sox Hall of Fame second baseman, dead at 99”

Legendary Red Sox second baseman Bobby Doerr passed away Monday in OR at age 99, the team said.

Doerr was elected to the National Baseball Hall of Fame in 1986 before the Red Sox retired his No. 1 jersey two years later.

Born in Los Angeles on April 7, 1918, Doerr was the oldest living Major League Baseball League player prior to his death.

The Red Sox announced this morning that Bobby Doerr passed away last night at the age of 99. "He will be missed".

A nine-time all star, Doerr batted over.300 three times, drove in more than 100 runs six times, and set Red Sox team records in several statistical categories despite missing one season due to military service during World War II.

"Bobby's life is one we salute not only for its longevity, but for its grace", said Red Sox chairman Tom Werner. "He touched us all with his class and dignity, and will remain an example and an inspiration for generations of players to come".

Following his playing career, Doerr served as a scout and eventually a first base coach for the Red Sox before he became the expansion Toronto Blue Jays' hitting coach in 1977, a position he stayed at until 1981. He was also the last of the famous group of Red Sox players, including Williams, Dominic DiMaggio and Johnny Pesky, who, in the 1940s and 1950s, forged the identity of the storied franchise for millions of northeast fans. "We celebrated his return every time he came back to us here at Fenway Park, and we now mourn his passing, grateful for the wonderful memories he left".
