Honoring the Brooklyn Dodgers Players Alive as of January 6, 2014
Here is my annual post of updating this list of the Brooklyn Dodgers players alive. From the Brooklyn Dodger players, we lost Andy Pafko, Don Lund, Preston Ward and the youngest one, Don Miller.
We now have 38 surviving Broklyn Dodger players with Mike Sandlock who continues to be the oldest one. Mr. Sandlock will turn 99 on October 17. The youngest one is now Bob Aspromonte who will turn 75 on June 19.
Happy birthday to Ralph Branca who turns 88 today January 6, Dia de Los Reyes, Day of the Kings.
I wish you all a healthy 2014.

I just found out that Charlie Osgood passed away. He passed away on January 23. Sad we lost our first Brooklyn Dodger this year. Rest in peace Mr. Charlie Osgood.
Chuck Kress passed away March 4, 2014. Rest in peace Mr. Chuck Kress.
thanks for this list. I have been reading recently more of the Biographies of the “Boys of Summer” and I was wondering how many are left from that great era
Wakey74, you are so welcome. Is fun keeping track of our old Boys of Summer.
Rest in peace Don Zimmer. (January 17, 1931 – June 4, 2014)
Hi I don’t see a pitcher named Ken Lehman on your list. He pitched for the Bums in the 50’s.
just saw that George Shuba has passed away http://sports.yahoo.com/news/george-shuba-former-brooklyn-dodger-dead-89-014931794–mlb.html
Jerry Gerstman, , Thanks for the information! I went back and read about him after seeing your comment. The list here is of Brooklyn Dodgers alive. I create a new post annually updating the prior year.
Wakey74, I saw that the Dodger historian posted that. Sad day to see another Brooklyn Dodger player has passed away. Rest in peace Mr. Shuba.
