  • Rocky Bridges, Dick Teed and Jean-Pierre Roy, former Dodgers players, pass away

    Rocky Bridges began his career with the Brooklyn Dodgers in 1951. He spent two years with the club, hitting .237 in 114 games. He was involved in this massive four-team trade: "February 16, 1953: Traded as part of a 4-team trade by the Brooklyn Dodgers to the Cincinnati Reds. The Milwaukee Braves sent cash to the Cincinnati Reds. The Milwaukee Braves sent Earl Torgeson to the Philadelphia Phillies. The Cincinnati Reds sent Joe Adcock to the Milwaukee Braves. The Brooklyn Dodgers sent Jim Pendleton to the Milwaukee Braves. The Philadelphia Phillies sent cash to the Milwaukee Braves. The Philadelphia Phillies sent Russ Meyer to the Brooklyn Dodgers."

    Everett Lamar Bridges, better known as 'Rocky" when he was a popular manager of the Hawaii Islanders in the early 1970s, has died.

    His death, at age 87 in Idaho, was reported by several media outlets.

    After an 11-year career as a journeyman Major League infielder with seven teams, Bridges spent 21 seasons as a manager in the minors, compiling a 1,300-1,358 record. While he coached in the majors he never managed there.

    Dick Teed played a single game for the Dodgers in 1953 ... in his lone at-bat, he struck out. All told, he spent 12 years in the Dodgers minor league system. He died in August, but did not get his own thread previously.

    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.

    Like Teed, Jean-Pierre Roy had a very brief big league career, pitching three games for the Dodgers in 1946. With their Double-A team, Montreal, in 1945, he went 25-11. He died in October, but did not get his own thread until now.

    Jean-Pierre died Saturday morning in Florida at the age of 94 years. We do not know the exact cause of death.

    In 1945, Roy had reached the zenith of his fame when he won 25 wins with the Montreal Royals. Its popularity then arguing the importance to that of Maurice Richard and Yvon Robert wrestler.
