Lou Lusier, Oldest Red Sox Alum, Dies At 96

Lou Lusier (1918-2014)
He was a pitcher for the Red Sox during the World Ward II years. He was a local kid from Northbridge, Mass. He pitched 79.1 innings for Boston over a two-year span—going 3-4 with a 3.97 ERA. Until he passed away on Saturday at age 96, Lou Lusier was the oldest living Red Sox alum. His passing moves the legendary Bobby Doerr into that spot. Lou stayed active—even attending the 100th Anniversary Celebration at Fenway Park. He will be missed.
