Oldest Living Negro Leaguer, Emilio Navarro, Passes

I heard this via Facebook e-mail, but I see his Wikipedia page has been updated accordingly: Emilio Navarro, the oldest living Negro Leaguer has passed in Ponce, Puerto Rico. He was the last living player to have played in the Negro League.

Update 5/1: His AP obit, via ESPN. He was also apparently the oldest professional ball player.
