COOPERSTOWN: Lee MacPhail, who had been the oldest living member of the Baseball Hall of Fame, has died at age 95, the American sporting shrine announced on its website on Friday.

MacPhail died of natural causes at his home in Delray Beach, Florida, after celebrating his birthday with family and friends two weeks ago. He had been elected to the Hall of Fame in 1998 after more than 50 years as an executive.

“Baseball history has lost a great figure in Lee MacPhail, whose significant impact on the game spanned five decades,” Hall of Fame chairman Jane Forbes Clark said.

“As a Hall of Fame executive, Lee developed one of the game’s strongest farm systems for the New York Yankees before serving as American League president for 10 years;” he added.
