I didn't realize that Dick Williams who managed Oakland, San Diego etc.. played for Brooklyn. Thats an impressive four HOFer's in the lineup.

I didn't realize that Dick Williams who managed Oakland, San Diego etc.. played for Brooklyn. Thats an impressive four HOFer's in the lineup.

His rookie card is from the 1952 Topps set - it's a hard-to-get high number. And that Brooklyn lineup was jawdropping, to be sure. And that is without Jackie Robinson (I wonder if he was injured, as he had missed about 30 games that year).

I knew I forgot someone, so counting Robinson that would have been 5 HOFers on the Brooklyn team. Not factoring in either Gil Hodges who came awfully damn close to getting in and certainly more worthy of getting in than some of the slugs that are already in.
