sunday morning target dodgers

it's time for another edition of 1990 target dodgers.  let's start with the penguin, ron cey.
by the time this card was issued, cey had been retired for 2 years and gone from the dodgers 8 years.  in that 8 year span, from 1983 through 1990, the dodgers had 23 different players at third base.  wow.

tommy john
hard to believe that this is the best photo they had for tommy.  tommy was 87-42 for the dodgers in his 6 seasons with them.  7 if you count the season he sat out to have surgery.

glenn hoffman
hoffman played in just 40 games for the dodgers - all in 1987 - and hit only .220 during that time.  he would return to the franchise later as a coach, and then as an interim manager.

don hoak
the slick fielding third basemen of the 'boys of summer', hoak found greater success after he left brooklyn.  he did get to start game 7 of the 1955 world series in place of jackie robinson, and was on the field when the dodgers won the championship.

howard freigau
freigau appeared in 17 games in 1928 for the brooklyn robins before he was purchased by the boston braves.  in his first game for the braves, he faced the robins, and tripled home two runs in his only at bat.

bill fischer
fischer caught for the brooklyn superbas in 1913, the brooklyn robins in 1914, and then moved on to the chicago whales of the federal league in 1915 before playing out his career with the cubs and pirates.  during his time in brooklyn, he hit .263 with a single home run.  

red evans 
red pitched for the brooklyn dodgers in 1939, making 6 starts in 24 appearances.  he earned his sole major league win on july 16 against the cubs. evans pitched 6.1 scoreless innings in relief of van lingle mungo.

hank edwards
edwards is the guy the dodgers got from the cubs in exchange for chuck connors, the rifleman.  he stayed in brooklyn for only 35 games in 1951 before he was purchased by the reds.  as a dodger, edwards hit .226 with 3 rbi.
