  • Can Anyone Recognize Him?

    I'm in need of help. Can anyone recognize the man next to Jackie Robinson in this You Tube Clip. He appears during the minutes between 3:50 and 3:54.
    I have asked many people and they think he is a coach. Any help would be most appreciated. Thank You.

    Looks like Clyde Sukeforth to me. He was a coach. He also was the guy who scouted Robby for Rickey and brought him to Rickey's office. He also (because Durocher was suspended Opening Day 1947) was Robby's first big league manager, as he was the official manager on Opening Day, 1947.

    Other coaches hard to recognize were Milt Stock (the one who waved Cal Abrams home on the last day of the season in Philadelphia) and Ray Blades. Jack Pitler, everyone recognizes.

      Milt Stock had drastic plastic surgery after the 1950 season, and he became completely unrecognizable. I believe he and Jaykay used the same plastic surgeon.
