[edit] History, Comments, Contributions

The 1952 Dodgers won fewer games than the 1953 Dodgers, but they came closer to winning the World Series, being tied in the sixth inning of the seventh game.

1952 was Gil Hodges' year. He led the team with 32 home runs, 27 doubles, 102 RBI, 107 walks, and a .500 slugging percentage. Jackie Robinson had the highest batting average and scored the most runs.

No starter won more than 14 games, although reliever Joe Black went 15-4 with 15 saves.

Black was Rookie of the Year, Robinson led the league in OBP, Pee Wee Reese led the league in stolen bases, and seven Brooklyn players were named to the All-Star team.
