The end of an amazing era is approaching. According to my count, only twenty players that wore the Brooklyn Dodger uniform in a major league game remain alive. The youngest of the bunch is Bob Aspromonte at age 80. Sadly, father time is telling us that within the next 10-12 years, there may not be any living Brooklyn Dodger players. I can imagine that as the survivors dwindle down to the last few, there will be some publicity surrounding them, as morbid and unsettling as that seems.
