  • Dick Teed, former Dodgers player, passes away

    Dick Teed was something of a Moonlight Graham, appearing in a single game for the Dodgers in 1953. In his lone career at-bat, he struck out against pitcher Max Surkont. He spent many years in their minor league system as well.

    Richard L. Teed, 88, of Windsor, beloved husband of the late Virginia (LaBounty) Teed, passed away on Sunday, August 17, 2014 in Newport, Rhode Island. Dick was born March 8, 1926 in Springfield, MA to the late Leroy and Alice (Lamb) Teed. ...

    Baseball was always a part of Dick's life and he played with some of the greats, including, Roy Campanella, Jackie Robinson and Tommy Lasorda to name a few. After his discharge in 1947 he signed with the Brooklyn Dodgers organization and in 1953 he was called up to play with the Brooklyn Dodgers. In 1961 he was sold to the Philadelphia Phillies where he coached with manager, Frank Lucchesi. From 1964-67 he managed in the Phillies organization and in 1968 became a scout for the Phillies.

    In 1977 he rejoined the Dodgers, now in Los Angeles, as Head Scout for the Northeast Region and remained with them until his retirement in 1994. In 2001 Dick was inducted into the National Baseball Scouts Hall of Fame at Camden Yards, Baltimore. He was also an inductee to the Windsor High School Hall of Fame. One of Dick's favorite things was teaching young people the sport of baseball.
