    Welcome, PEDRO, to OUR Brooklyn Dodger Squad!

    Yes, there are a total of 11 survivors of OUR 1955 World Championship team.

    Besides Duke Snider and Don Newcombe, there are Clem Labine, Johnny Podres, Ed Roebuck, George Shuba, Roger Craig, Billy Loes, Sandy Koufax, Don Zimmer and Carl Erskine.

    There are others that were not on OUR 1955 Team that are still with us... Ralph Branca, Bobby Morgan, Randy Jackson, Gino Cimoli, Ken Lehman, Andy Pafko, Dick Williams, Gene Hermanski and Rocky Bridges are a few of them.

      Although not on the official 1955 World Series team, Tommy Lasorda "sorta" was on the team, at least until June 8, 1955.

          Sadly, SANDY AMOROS, one of the heros of OUR 1955 World Championship, passed away in 1992.

            Sandy Amoros passed away June 27, 1992. I imagine his soul will be present for your celebration. The same goes for Jackie, Pee Wee, Gil and the rest. I don't think think they'd miss it for anything . I've always been struck by how fondly your Brooklyn Dodgers recall you, their fans, in interview after interview. What you shared together can never be recreated. You know that. What you continue to share can only be envied by the rest of us.

              Thank you, zman!

              OUR Brooklyn Dodgers and US......truly a family! They were as much a part of US as WE were of them....and not one of them has ever forgotten the bond WE shared...and still do to this day.

              As I have always said...IT was a SPECIAL TIME, in a SPECIAL PLACE, with a VERY SPECIAL TEAM, who had VERY LOYAL and SPECIAL FANS.......sadly, BASEBALL will NEVER see the likes of US again! :gt

                I do not knpow how you guys did it, but you left out catcher. Campy unfortunately died in 1993, and Rube Walker died a few years later.

                    No. My comments were directed toward Brooklyn Dodgers fans. I'm a Yankees fan myself and born too late (1954) to experience that wonderful era of Brooklyn baseball.

                      Does anyone know when Doc Wendler the Dodgers trainer passed away, or John Griffin the clubhouse man who supplied all the crazy hats we see in pictures?
                      Lets get Eddie Basinski elected to the Polish Sports Hall of Fame.

                        zman-
                        im a yankee fan too, but i was born VERY late to experience any of the brooklyn years.
                        but i am filling in for those years by getting all these dodgers' autographs.

                        tonypug-
                        good question, i have another question-

                          A name no one has mentioned is back up catcer Joe Pignatano. Not sure if he actually played in Brooklyn, but I think he might have for a brief time. :atthepc

                            "Piggy" did play on OUR 1957 team....and is still very much alive. He enjoys golfing, almost every day!
