At the time of his death he was the oldest living Cub. That title now passes to Bobby Shantz, who pitched for the Cubs in the last season of his career (1964) after being a throw-in by the Cardinals in the Lou Brock trade. #Cubs #everycubever https://t.co/ci641XIZXe https://t.co/shg7HbfbIZ— Rick Kaempfer (@RickKaempfer) February 3, 2021
His entry in EveryCubEver...
Twig, as he was known by his teammates, made his big-league debut for the Cubs on August 6, 1949. He made enough of an impression on the team to earn the starting second base job in 1950. He hit 10 homers for them that year. The following season he was traded to Brooklyn along with Andy Pafko, Johnny Schmitz, and Rube Walker in one of the worst trades in Cubs history. Twig later also played for the Senators, Athletics, and Giants. On the day this issue of EveryCubEver was sent to the printer (10/20/20), Wayne was the oldest living Cub.
