Greatest Los Angeles/Brooklyn Dodgers Player of All Time

One of the greatest franchises in all of baseball deserves this list!

The Top TenXW

1Sandy Koufax

One of the greatest pitchers of all time, his career was cut short by an arm injury. Still his numbers and feats are incredible and legendary.

Was at the coliseum Aug '59 when he struck out 18 Giants. Saw him pitch m.b. a 100 times, usually complete game shutout. If he gave up 1-2 runs it was unusual. Willie May's when asked what it was like to face him, he said I did like everyone, I went up, took my 3 swings and went and sat down.

2Duke Snider

Since number one is a pitcher, it makes sense that number two would be arguably the best Dodgers hitter of all time. He has the most home runs of all time for the club, and was one of the great Brooklyn dodgers in the 50s.

3Roy Campanella

Already the greatest Dodger catcher and one of the players following Jackie Robinson to break the color barrier, Campanella is the namesake of the team's premier award.

4Steve Garvey

The leader of the competitive Dodgers infield in the 70s and early 80s, Garvey was a strong player who had a strong balance between power and average.

5Don Drysdale

Often overshadowed by Sandy Koufax, Drysdale became one of the greatest pitchers of all time, but also had his career cut short.

6Jackie Robinson

Obviously great just for breaking the color barrier, Robinson was great on the field with A.311 batting average, and the ability to play multiple positions.

7Pee Wee Reese

One of the greatest shortstops, Pee Wee was a great team leader, and did the smaller things, such as 1, 210 walks. He also is famous for putting his arm around Jackie Robinson during the strong time of racism.

8Ron Cey

One of the members of the 70s infield, Cey was the home run man of the team hitting 228 during his time in LA

9Clayton Kershaw

I'm glad that Clayton is getting a chance to star. He helped make the Dodgers relevant again basically. I hope he can a World Series soon. GO DODGERS! - BigBerry25

10Gil Hodges

The big hitter of the "Boys of Summer" Hodges hit 364 home runs, and was a favorite of fans.

The Contenders

11Zach Wheat

A career.317 hitter, Wheat was hugely popular, and was named the most popular baseball player in New York by a local newspaper even during the time of Frankie Frisch and Babe Ruth.
