Let’s toast #39

29 Mar

Just feels like a good day to honor the memory of Dodger icon Roy Campanella.

  • Three-time National League most valuable player (1951, 1953, 1955).
  • Eight-time all-star catcher for the Brooklyn Dodgers dynasty of the 1950s.
  • Played in five World Series.
  • Inducted into the National Baseball Hall of Fame in 1969.
  • Longtime mentor for hundreds if not thousands of Dodger minor-leaguers at spring training in Vero Beach.
  • An inspiration for millions for how he lived his life after being paralyzed in an auto accident.

One of the all-time greats behind the plate -- and with a bat in his hands.
