Legendary Dodger great Don Newcombe has passed at 92. Newcombe played 10 years in the majors, eight with the Dodgers …. all in New York. He was Rookie of the Year in 1949, a key member member if the 1955 championship team, and one of the “Bums” last links to Brooklyn. Newcombe finished his career with the Reds and Indians, never making the move to Los Angeles with the Dodgers.
Don Newcombe was 123-60 as a starter for the Dodgers. His best year was in 1956 when he won the Cy Young Award and was also the National League MVP, one of just 11 players to turn that trick. Newcombe was a five-time All-Star and took off the 1952 and 1953 seasons to serve in the Korean War.
