Biographical Information[edit]

Goody Rosen had two careers in the majors, both mainly with the Brooklyn Dodgers. He was up from 1937-39 and then again from 1944-46. It was all with Brooklyn except for a partial season in 1946 when he appeared in 100 games with the 1946 New York Giants. His career ended as a result of an injury with the Giants, suffered when he ran into a fence in the outfield. He had also been purchased by the Pirates in 1940 but never appeared in the majors with them.

Rosen, primarily a center fielder, had some decent seasons with the bat. His best one was 1945 when he hit .325 (third in the league) with 279 total bases (second in the league) and 126 runs scored (also second in the league). He was named to the All-Star team in 1945.

He signed with Rochester in 1931 and was with Louisville in 1933. He was with Montreal during part of the 1939 season and Syracuse from 1940-44. After the majors he was with Jersey City and Toronto.
