"Emmett McAuliffe

I am saddened to report that Tom Jordan passed away this morning.

We thank Tommy, Sheila and Ty for making that trip with Tom all the way from Roswell, NM to St. Louis last year for the luncheon. We feel blessed to have gotten to know this "broke the mold" kind of man. In the nick of time after having a bad address all those years.

He was the oldest living player as well as the oldest living Brown. He was also the last living player to have played *against* the Browns in the storied 1944 pennant winning year (he was a White Sox).
Now there are barely enough Browns living to fill out a lineup card. (Below is my son and I at Busch Stadium with Tom. Behind him is a photo of Rogers Hornsby who once yelled at a coach "not to touch" Jordan's swing because it was "perfect")."
