|As you know, I don't typically link articles from ESPN due to my own personal preferences. However, this one is too good to pass up.
Irving Piken turned 111 years old on Friday and is officially the "oldest man in the United States". It just so happens he's a Dodger fan, going way back--to pre-Depression Brooklyn. He's currently a Laguna Woods resident.
Although I've heard others reference Piken, this is the first time I've actually read an article about him (obviously I missed the original one published in 2017).
It's amusing to think of any fan considering Vinnie a youngster. LOL!
