The All-Time “Played for Both the Dodgers and Yankees” Team – The New Angeles Dodgekees

If you are an old geezer like me, you know that during World War II, the NFL ran so short of players because of the war that for three years between 1942 and 1945, the league merged the Pittsburgh Steelers and the Philadelphia Eagles into one team, the Phil-Pitt Steagles. With baseball season fast approaching, I though to myself, why not take a similar approach with my most hated baseball teams,  the Los Angeles Dodgers and the New York Yankees.

The idea was to build an all-time team out of players who played for both teams, just like I’ve already done with my two favorite teams.  I thought since I’d created a team from my favorites, why not create a natural rival for them from the two team I dislike the most?

With that, allow me to introduce the New Angeles Dodgekees:

  1. For some reason I don’t remember Lofton in a Dodgers uniform, but he played for so many teams I’m sure he was one at some point…

  2. The Springfield Nuclear Power Plant squad was one of the most formidable in Atomic History. The Isotopes radiated class and professionalism…as well as glowed in the dark.

  3. Hey, Dubstradamus.

    Isn’t it about time for a Stan Van Death Watch piece yet?

    Or is it already too late?

    1. Signs point to “too late,” but we could have said that months ago. The guy has been on a respirator for quite some time.
