COOPERSTOWN, N.Y. — Baseball's Hall of Fame says former American League President Lee MacPhail has died at 95.

He died Thursday night at his home in Delray Beach, Fla. He had been the oldest Hall of Famer.

MacPhail was the son of Larry MacPhail, who was president of the Brooklyn Dodgers, CEO and general manager of the Brooklyn Dodgers and co-owner, president and GM of the New York Yankees.

Lee MacPhail was GM and president of the Baltimore Orioles and general manager of the Yankees before serving as AL president from 1974 through the 1983 season.
