hank behrman was a brooklyn native who played for his hometown team. in two separate stints. hank behrman was a dodger double dipper.
the only card i have of behrman comes from the 1990 target set.
after debuting in 1946 and posting an 11-5 record with a 2.93 era, behrman had a couple of bad outings against the new york giants in april of 1947. a week or so later, he was traded to the pirates in the al gionfriddo deal. in 10 subsequent appearances for pittsburgh, behrman was 0-2 with an era over 9, and the pirates decided to return him to brooklyn. back with the dodgers, behrman pitched a bit better, going 5-3 with 8 'saves' in 38 appearances despite an era of 5.30. he even pitched in 5 of the 7 games of the 1947 world series against the yankees. after one more season with the dodgers, behrman finished his big league career with the giants in 1949.
this may be the last of the double dipper posts, although i see that the dodgers just re-signed ramon troncoso. and, this is post number 2600 for the blog - that's one more post than steve garvey had hits in his big league career. didn't think i would get to that number...
