Sandy Koufax Meet Mr. Ed

On Saturday the 16th, the Dodgers will be honoring the 1965 World Champion team  prior to their game against the Colorado Rockies. Among those who will be present is of course Sandy Koufax. Though Koufax would miss Game 1 of the 1965 World Series due to his religious obligations to the Jewish holiday of Yom Kippur, he would go on to win 2 games in the series, including the deciding Game 7 at Metropolitan Stadium against the Twins, pitching on only 2 days rest.

2 years prior, in addition to the Dodgers sweeping the Yankees in the 1963 World Series, Koufax, along with Moose Skowron, Willie Davis, Johnny Roseboro and Leo Durocher would guest in the classic Mr. Ed
