[edit] Biographical Information

While an average pitcher, Milt Gaston had the tough luck of pitching for bad teams. He has the lowest career winning percentage (.372) of anybody with 220 or more career decisions. Further, he lost 67 games more than he won: this number is also an all-time record.

Gaston never played in the minors. Over the course of his big league career, he was a teammate of a record 17 future Hall of Famers, including Babe Ruth, Lou Gehrig, and George Sisler. He also spent a season playing alongside his brother, catcher Alex Gaston, who was his batterymate with the 1929 Red Sox.

Gaston died in 1996, shortly after turning 100. At the time, he was one of just ten ex-major leaguers to live to age 100 and the only centenarian with a decade or more of big league experience.
