Nearly 100, Oldest Living Ex-Major Leaguer Calls Assisted Living Community Home

The Carriage Club at Charlotte, an ALFA-member assisted living
community in Charlotte, North Carolina, is home to Bill Werber, the
oldest living ex-Major League Baseball player. An Associated Press
feature article on Werber has been picked up by USA Today
and other news outlets this week, revealing humorous and intriguing
stories about Werber’s big-league career, during which he led the
American League in stolen bases three times.

In 1939, Werber led off in baseball’s first televised game at
Brooklyn, New York’s Ebbets Field. He was also Duke University’s first
All-American basketball player under Eddie Cameron, namesake of the
school’s Cameron Indoor Stadium.

Werber moved into The Carriage Club, a community of Chicago-based Brookdale Senior Living, several years ago to be closer to his daughter, Patricia, one of his three children.
