Steve Sax. Dodger 2nd baseman from 1981-1988. Sax would be the last of 4 consecutive Dodgers to win Rookie of the Year awards from 1979-1982, the previous 3 being Rick Sutcliffe, Steve Howe, and Fernando Valenzuela .
Oh yeah, there was another baseball player who once wore the number 3. He was also a coach for the Brooklyn Dodgers as well for one season. Speaking of Ruth coaching, Julia Ruth Stevens, daughter of Babe Ruth, 97 years young, recently told of how the Sultan of Swat, if given the opportunity, would have broken baseball’s color line before Jackie Robinson did as told here in a recent article from the New York Times .
Happy Birthday Kershaw !!!
