    The ONLY Brooklyn Dodger that wore #25 was Bob (Bobo) Milliken...and that was in the early 1950's.

      According to a Brooklyn Dodgers site that I have found, there would be 13 players. He was one of them.

        Perhaps I didn't word it correctly, but my reference is only to the 1950's (OUR 1950's), yr. I do not remember anyone else in that time frame wearing #25.

          There was another one wearing #25 in the 1950's.

          From 1932 there were 13 players that have worn this number.

            And that other one was CHRIS VAN CUYK!

                You are right so far.

                Now we still need three of them.

                Anybody?

                    I missed your Chris van Cuyk answer.

                    So three Brooklyn Dodgers remain unanswered.

                    I'll give a hint:1949 (2x) and 1945

                      My list doesn't show ANY Brooklyn Dodger in 1949 wearing #25.

                        According to the site I have checked there are two of them.

                        I wait a little while to give someone else a chance to anwer the question.

                          I couldn't find out who wore number 25 but it raised a question that you guys and gals could answer very easily. Did the Brooklyn Dodgers ever retire a number? My thought is that they didn't retire any till LA. Pew Wee was still playing as well as Duke etc. Just Wondering.

                            Otho Nicholas and Don Hund wore #25 in 1945.

                            EDIT: Otho Nicholas is already here.
                            A lot of people say this honor validates my career, but I didn't work hard for validation. I didn't play the game right because I saw a reward at the end of the tunnel. I played it right because that's what you're supposed to do, play it right and with respect. If this validates anything, it's that learning how to bunt and hit and run and turning two is more important than knowing where to find the little red light at the dug out camera. - Ryne Sandberg

                              I believe you are correct about that, SS.

                              The BROOKLYN Uniform Numbers that have been retired are 1, 4, 19, 32, 39, 42 and 53. With the exception of Jim Gilliam, all were retired WHEN the player was elected to the HOF, which was Dodger policy at that time.
