    1965 i'm kinda curious if he was on the WS roster. Baseball Reference I don't think tells who was on the WS rosters.
    Yeah, I edited that. BB-Ref doesn't have the rosters, just who played.

      He had a halfway decent year but I would have to guess he made the WS roster and never got in a game. Unless he got injured.

        I really searched and cannot find rosters. My guess is that he on, but didn't play. BTW, 1965 is the only 7 game WS where all 7 WP threw complete games.

          I flipped them too. I was thinking of 66 when they lost and left off 53, when he pitched but they lost.

            Thats interesting, That really makes me wonder if he was at least in the dugout during the WS. I would have t think he had a roster spot in that WS but again it's hard to get in games with Koufax and Drysdale.

                  Yeah i've been thinking of players and checking em as I go otherwise i'd have 20 extra posts on here. I remembered Amos Strunk from a draft we did recently.

                    Johnny Podres was on the post-season roster in 1965; he just didn't play in the World Series.

                      Can you find that on baseball reference?

                          No. I don't care what Baseball Reference has. Some of their data is erroneous, and they are slow to correct it (or accept corrections.) Multiple sources (The Sporting News World Series Record Book and Neft/Cohen's The World Series for two) indicate Podres was on the roster but didn't play. The Dodgers used only 20 players in the World Series in 1965. Podres was one of the ones who didn't play.

                            That's the last one. Congrats!

                            This quote of yours from before made me think of a related trivia question. There are 10 players who have played in the WS on the losing side in at least 5 seasons. (No restriction on whether or not the player was ever on the Yankees with this question.) Marquard is one. Can anyone guess the other 9 without cheating?

                                You got 3, including one of the two 6-timers.

                                Pee Wee Reese (6: Dodgers 1941, '47, '49, '52-53, '56)
                                Carl Furillo (5: Dodgers 1947, '49, '52-53, '56)
                                Gil Hodges (5: Dodgers 1947, '49, '52-53, '56)

                                Branca and Snider were good guesses -- each of them played on WS-winning teams in 5 seasons, but did not actually play in the WS in one of those seasons.

                                6 to go.
