4/19/2018, From the management: We have moved the Bullpen over to its new permanent server setup. It's a bit much to explain here, but I think it's working mostly. We have an issue where some requests are blocked due to too many images on a page. I'm working on fixing that issue today. Please let me know on User_talk:Admin if you see any issues. Thank you as always for your support.

History, Comments, Contributions[edit]

The 1941 Brooklyn Dodgers were a sensation, winning 100 games. They won the pennant for the first time in 21 years, and led the National League in attendance. In the race for the pennant, they beat the St. Louis Cardinals by only 2 1/2 games, but everyone else by at least 12 games.

Dolph Camilli was the slugging star with 34 home runs and 120 RBI, winning the MVP Award. Pete Reiser, only 22, led the league in batting average, slugging, and runs scored. Regulars included Hall of Famers Billy Herman, Joe Medwick, and youngster Pee Wee Reese.

The pitching staff featured a pair of 22-game winners, Kirby Higbe and Whit Wyatt. Freddie Fitzsimmons, at age 39, posted a record of 6-1 with an ERA of 2.07.
