[edit] History, Comments, Contributions

The 1944 Dodgers had their Spring Training in Bear Mountains, NY because travel was limited due to the War.

The team had a 16 yr. old shortstop named Tommy Brown and a 48 year old pinch hitter named Babe Herman.

Dixie Walker (#11), the Peoples Cherce was the right fielder. Goody Rosen #35, from Canada was the center fielder. One of the first Puerto Rican players, Luis Olmo was left fielder.

The infield had Howie Schultz at first, Eddie (the violin) Basinski at second, Brown at short, and Frenchy Bordagaray at third. The catcher was Clyde Sukeforth, later a coach. Pitchers included Hal Gregg, Art Herring, Curt Davis, Ed Head, and Hugh Casey (later committed suicide).

Leo Durocher was the manager.

They might not have won many games, but they were loved.
