    1946 Brooklyn Dodgers

    Eddie Stanky

    3 teams qualified for post regular season play in 1946. The Brooklyn Dodgers ended the regular season in a tie with the St. Louis Cardinals but lost the 3 game playoff series without a win.

    Leadoff batter was starting second baseman Eddie Stanky. Stanky amassed on on-base percentage of .436 aided in no small part by 137 bases on balls, both League leading marks. Stanky repeated his 1945 achievement of recording more walks than hits. In addition Stanky led the League with 20 sacrifice hits. 98 runs scored was third highest in the National League. Rated fourth in the League behind Musial, Mize and Ennis in Total Player Rating. Not blessed with great natural baseball skills but endowed with a surfeit of ways to win.

        Pete Reiser

        27 year old, right hand hitting Pete Reiser was the regular third place hitter and starting left fielder. A noted clutch hitter 1946 was his last All-Star selection. Won the League stolen base crown for the second time with 34 steals, including 7 of home. True to form, late in the season while attempting a diving catch broke his left ankle, dislocated his left shoulder and tore muscles in his left leg. Turned more double plays than any other left fielder in the League in 1946.
