I know, I know, I'm breaking my own rule of separate threads for non-Hall of Famers, but this one I felt deserved special mention.

The great Don Newcombe has left us at age 91. May he rest in eternal blue peace!

That is sad news. I know how much he meant to the history of baseball and how much he meant to the Dodgers. Rest in peace.

My heart is broken at the loss of another treasured player and Dodger icon. He is going to be so missed.

The Dodgers will wear patches in honor of him this season. So deserved!
