Honoring the Brooklyn Dodgers players still living in 2012
From SABR member Emma Amaya at Crzblue’s Dodger Blue World on January 12, 2012:
For the last three years I’ve been maintaining this list keeping track of our old Brooklyn Dodgers. When I did last year’s post on January 10 , it started with a video of Duke Snider in the game show “What is my Line”. Sad that in 2011, we lost nine of these players, including the Duke.
We have 44 surviving Brooklyn Dodger Players. Let’s see how the list looks using WordPress.
