APTOPIX Cuba Oldest Ballplayer
Conrado Marrero, the world's oldest living former major league baseball player, poses for a photo during his 102nd birthday bash at his home in Havana, Cuba, Thursday, April 25, 2013. In addition to his longevity, the former Washington Senator has much to celebrate this year. After a long wait, he finally received a $20,000 payout from Major League baseball granted to old-timers who played between 1947 and 1979. The money had been held up since 2011 due to issues surrounding the 51-year-old U.S. embargo on Cuba, which prohibits most bank transfers to the Communist-run island. But the payout finally arrived in two parts, one at the end of last year, and the second a few months ago, according to Marrero's family. (AP Photo/Franklin Reyes)
