From John Fay:

Eddie Joost, who became in 2009 with the death of Lonny Frey the last living member of the Reds team that won the 1940 World Series, has passed away at 94.

It’s a short, interesting article on Mr. Joost, who was interviewed a number of times by local writer John Erardi.

The thoughts and prayers of RedlegNation.com go out to Mr. Joost’s family and friends.
