MLB Endcaps: Who was the first player younger than you to play in MLB, and the last player older than you to play in the MLB?

Older Player Endcap: This is not just the oldest active player ever. For example, Jason Giambi is not the oldest player to ever play a game. He played until he was 43. He was born on January 8, 1971. But, if you were born on June 6, 1971, Giambi was the last player older than you to play in the majors.
If there are still active players older than you, we just tell you who the oldest one is (Hi Bartolo).

Younger Player Endcap: This is not the youngest player to ever play. This is the first player to get in a game who was younger than you were on that day.
For example: Josh Beckett is younger than CC Sabathia. But CC made it to the majors before Beckett did, so if you were born on March 22, 1980, CC is your Endcap, not Beckett.
