Oldest former Yankee passes away

Infielder Frey played for Yanks in 1947-48

NEW YORK -- Lonny Frey, thought to have been the oldest living Yankee, passed away on Sunday at his home in Coeur D'Alene, Idaho. He was 99.

Frey played 15 years of professional baseball, including two seasons with the Yankees in 1947-48.

A second baseman and shortstop, the three-time All-Star (1939, '41, '43) played in three World Series, winning the title with the Yankees in '47.

Frey also played for the Brooklyn Dodgers (1933-36), Chicago Cubs (1937, '47), Cincinnati Reds (1938-46) and New York Giants (1948). He was a career .269 hitter in 1,535 Major League games.

With Frey's passing, Tommy Henrich (96) is thought to be the oldest living Yankee.
