    Albosta Pitched in 1941 and had a 0-2 record with a 6.23 ERA. He pitched a total of 13 innings and gave up 11 hits, 8 Walks and had 5 Ks. After that, he must have gone into the service and Pitched for Pittsburgh in 1946 with an 0-6 recordn and a 6.13 ERA in 17 games with 6 saves, 44 Walks and 19 Ks.

    Thanks for the info, BB36.

      Don't forget Larry MacPhail set them on the right course before Branch showed up. He turned the Brooklyn franchise around when it was going to the dogs.
      It's possible the team could have moved without his help.

              Nice photo of LUIS OLMO, who came up to BROOKLYN in July 1943, and played for US through the 1940's. I believe he was the first Hispanic to play for US.

                That's my dad!

                I just found this website...very cool...and this thread is especially interesting.



                Two guys to the left of Jackie Robinson (Jackie's left, your right) is my dad, (Lefty) Joe Hatten, Pitcher.

                My wife and I are just now trying to collect images of the '46-'51 Dodgers, especially those with my dad's picture in them. If you have some photos from that time frame and would be willing to make some copies (we'll pay!) please contact us at [email protected]

                Thanks

                  So nice to welcome a BROOKLYN DODGER FAMILY to OUR little corner of the baseball world.

                  There are many here, including myself, who certainly remember your Dad, Joe.
                  WE will keep an eye out for any photos of him and certainly let you know about them.

                  In the meantime, feel free to browse throughout OUR threads, and do join in on the discussions. If you care to, you can start by telling US all about Dad...YOU will certainly have a very attentive audience here.

                  Again, welcome!

                    Hatten had a couple of decent seasons with the Dodgers, but what I remember most was that he was the starting pitcher on April 15, 1947, and he threw the pitch to DiMaggio in Game 6 of the '47 Series that made a hero of Al Gionfriddo...for the second time in that Series.

                    Joe was 29 when he made his ML debut. What took him so long?

                      The way I heard it from my dad, he was called by the Dodgers in '41 and was to sign a contract for the 42 season but a little thing called WW2 got in the way. My dad went into the Navy and got out in '45 and went to training camp. His first season was '46. My mom says he could have been a bigger "star" had he reported in '41. He still had a strong arm at 29, he pitched a double header in one day (amazing! Love to see some of the players nowadays do that...LOL!)

                      I will have to gin up a story about my dad over the next few days. I need to consult my mom on the "Dodger/Cub days" as my dad was already in AAA ball by the time I was born. He was playing on the Havana Cubanos winter ball club in 1954 when I was born in Havana....hehehe.

                      PS: My wife has turned into an avid fan of the Brooklyn Dodgers... she is looking for any and all pics of the 40's-50's Dodgers and I'm sure she will be contacting all of you who have the cool photo collections. :gt

                        Has anyone found a photo of the final game at EF on 9/24/57?

                        Or of the ballpark and area on the day after - or in the week or month after?

                            For some strange reason, there isn't a whole lot available. I have some newspaper stories, and one photo of a couple of young female fans crying, but thats all I have been able to find.

                              The book by Donald Honig, The Brooklyn Dodgers, An Illustrated Tribute has a real nice photo of your dad on page 131, as as well as photos of all the Brooklyn Dodgers. It's an excellent book.
