  • Fred Kipp

    Another day, another Post...

    Pitched in both the borough and out west...and made a zillion stops in between... eventually was traded to the Yanks and played for Casey a spell...long lanky lefty. After baseball?

    Any pictures in Brooklyn uni of ol' Mr. Kipp? Memories?

          It also could have been taken at Forbes Field in Pittsburgh!

            It could be but I thought with the ivy on the walls it was probably Wrigley field.

              The most notable thing I saw upon reading about Fred Kipp (a new name to me) is that he was a lefty knuckleballer. He did well as the Dodgers played vs. Japanese teams in the winter of '56, which earned him a shot in The Show.

              In 1985, the Dodgers held an Old-Timers' Game, and the LA Times posted a table in the 6/23/85 paper with info on "Whatever Became Of..." various players from the '55 and '59 clubs. Fred was listed as owning an energy management company in Kansas.

                Exactly the point I was making. Having been there, I know that Forbes Field's outfield walls were also covered in ivy.......take a look.....
