Nice post reminding us of those who have passed on in 2010. I remember Lima and King very well.

Thanks Jane,
I saw a picture of King with all those Yankee rings.

Nice Post. You can also include Danny McDevitt, he won the last game ever in Ebbets Field for the Dodgers. He died in mid November.

Russelw,
The minute I read your post I said “Shoot!!” “I knew I had forgotten someone!” “shoot” “Aghhh! I had read that in the obituary back in November” Thank you so much for catching that. Going back to correct that.

Emma,
How did you compile the number (54) of Brooklyn Dodgers still alive? Is there a website you got it from? I’d like to see the complete list.

TrueBluewill,
A year ago I started compiling the list ’cause I was wondering how many of them were alive. We had 63 when I started the list last January and before posting it one passed away so we were down to 62. Now is 54.
.
Here is the list I posted a year ago.

.
I have the list at work in a excel worsheet so I can sort any way I want ’cause I wanted to know the oldest, the youngest, the ones having a birthday. Malinoskwy is the oldest at 101 and Rod Miller the youngest turning 71 on January 16th. Koufax is the third youngest.
.
I’ll post an updated one.

Emma,
Thanks a lot for re-posting the list. I look forward to the updated one. I’m going to make a copy of it and add the years that each player played for the Dodgers and also see how many on the ’55 championship team are left.

True,
I decided not to wait to get the list I have at work. This one I can’t delete individual lines. I guess it considers the whole thing as an entry so I am typing a new one from that list. You are welcome to copy the new one once I post it.
