Otis died Saturday in Duluth, where he had lived since 1914.Otis, who played for a month in 1912 with the New York Highlanders, who later became the Yankees, was the third former major leaguer to make it to 100, according to Jim Ogle of the New York Yankees Alumni Association.

Otis was born Dec. 24, 1889. In 20 major-league at bats, he had just one hit - but it came off Hall-of-Famer Walter Johnson of the Washington Senators.
