Oldest Living Members of the Baseball Hall of Fame

share on:

Sadly, in the last few years we’ve lost several members of the Baseball Hall of Fame. The Hall of Fame membership currently has 65 living members who were elected as players in Major League Baseball. (As of January 23, 2021)

In 2020, we lost Al Kaline, Tom Seaver, Lou Brock, Bob Gibson, and Whitey Ford. [Note: Hall of Fame second baseman Joe Morgan died on October 11, Phil Niekro in December, Tom Lasorda in early January, and Don Sutton and Henry Aaron early in 2020 as well]

This chart shows only the living former players in the Baseball Hall of Fame.
