This week on the podcast we were kind of all over the place, with no real central theme. We talked about Joe Davis’ cutting board with baseball bat handles, and answered some questions from both Craig and the listeners.
This week’s look back is catcher Joe Dunn, who played only 30 games for Brooklyn in 1908-09. He was a light hitter, but had a memorable debut against Hall of Famer Christy Mathewson. Dunn also managed in the independent minor leagues for the better part of two decades after his playing career was over.
Dunn could also rock a Dodgers sweater.
Baseball sweaters are cool. Joe Dunn of #brooklyn Superbas (later @dodgers) with his catcher's mitt. Dunn played in only 30 #MLB games, but spent 4 decades in baseball as mgr, scout, owner, or GM.
