Grim Reaper Ruins San Francisco Giants Halloween

The death of Silas Simmons of St. Petersburg, Fla., born Oct. 14, 1895, means three things: the loss of the oldest surviving professional baseball player; the elevation of Ernest Pusey, born May 5, 1895, to his new ranking on the list of top 10 oldest living men in America; and the San Francisco Giants will have to look elsewhere to fill out their outfield next year.

Why would the death of a guy born in October 1895 have any affect on where a guy born May of the same year would rank on an oldest guy list?

Just seeing if you were paying attention.
