I’ve been working on a list of Brooklyn Dodger players alive. When I started the list, there were 63, but Thursday 1/21/10, Bobby Bragan passed away at the age of 92.
Below is the updated list.
It starts with Tony Malinosky, the oldest at 100 years old and Rod Miller who had a birthday on 1/16, the youngest at 70 years old. Sandy Koufax is the third youngest one.
Here is Duke Snider working with the young players at the Winter Workouts iat Dodger Stadium in 2009.
July 28, 2010: Sadly, the list is now down to 59 Brooklyn Dodger players.
November 7, 2010: Rest in peace Clyde King. He passed away November 2, 2010
