We remember Don Newcombe who was born in Madison, New Jersey on this day in 1926.  He died in 2019.

Newcombe broke with the Brooklyn Dodgers in 1946 and won NL Rookie of the Year:  17-8, 19 complete games & 5 shutouts.

After military service in 1952-53, Don became one of the best pitchers of the 1950's, including winning 27-7, the NL MVP & Cy Young in 1956.

He retired in 1960 with 149 wins, 136 complete games and 26 shutouts.  

Newcombe was a big part of those legendary Dodgers teams that inspired "The boys of summer" by Roger Kahn.
