Charles Henry Emig (April 5, 1875 – October 2, 1975) was a Major League Baseball pitcher. He played in one game for the Louisville Colonels of the National League in 1896. Emig is currently accepted to be the last surviving 19th century major league player; it took baseball researchers two decades after his death to realize that he, not Ralph Miller as previously thought, held that distinction.
