Brooklyn Dodger Players Alive. Updated List with new data

Thankfully the list of Brooklyn players alive is still the same number as when I updated the list as of January 2013. The only thing is that I updated the list to include the years the players played for the Dodgers. I got a comment asking me if I knew who of the Dodger players that are alive played with Jackie Robinson in 1947. Robert knew Ralph Branca did, but he wanted to know who else. The other two are Don Lund and Marv Rackley.

So here is the updated list with what years each of these players played for the Dodgers.
Clike on the following link to open the worksheet.

Honoring the Brooklyn Dodger players alive as of January 12, 2012

For the last three years I’ve been maintaining this list keeping track of our old Brooklyn Dodgers.   When I did last year’s post   http://crzblue.mlblogs.com/2011/01/09/honoring-the-brooklyn-dodger-players-alive-as-of-january-10th-2011/  on January 10, it started with a video of Duke Snider in the game show “What is my Line”    Sad that in 2011, we lost nine of these players including the Duke.
