  • Brooklyn Dodgers who became Tigers

    I was noticing the other day how many washed up Dodgers the Tigers
    picked up over the years.
    Rockey Bridges
    Roger Craig (good coach for 84 team)
    Don Demeter (bad trade for Bunning)
    Charlie Dressen (died on the job). He didn't think of the right
    thing in 1951.
    Chico Fernandez (who landed back with the Mets)
    Clem Labine (14 games-0 and 3 in 1960)
    Sandy Amoros (65 games -.149 avg)
    Johnny Podres (3-1 and 3.84 and 1 save) not bad
    Can you think of any others?

        Pete Wojey :

        1954 Dodgers 1-1 27.1 innings. 3.25 ERA

        1956 and 1957 Tigers 5.3 combined innings over his 2 seasons in the Motor City.

        Though he never played for either team, HOF announcer Ernie Harwell comes to mind as someone with a connection to both Brooklyn and Detroit.

          Tuck Stainback is another one to add to the list.

            Let's not forget the big brother of "Harry the Hat", Fred, known locally as "Dixie" or the "People's Cherce"..... great player, so/so humanitarian.
            After 1957, it seemed like we would never laugh again. Of course, we did. Its just that we were never young again.

              Detroit picked up Ivan DeJesus in 1988 for a few ABs. Are you looking for players the Dodgers traded to the Tigers, or just players the Tigers obtained who had also once played for the Dodgers?
