72 Years Ago Today-Feb. 23, 1934
Casey Stengel, former BROOKLYN player from 1912-1917 and current coach, is named manager of the BROOKLYN DODGERS, replacing Max Carey.
Unfortunately, Ol' Case didn't enjoy much success. The DODGERS would finish 71-81 (6th place) in 1934, 70-83 (5th place in 1935) and drop to 67-87 (7th) in 1936 before Burleigh Grimes took over as manager in 1937.
