Note: The Dodger Thoughts blog has moved to the Los Angeles Times.

I mean no disrespect whatsoever when I write that a trivia answer has passed away. According to the Shreveport Times, Seth Morehead, reportedly the last pitcher to face Roy Campanella and the Brooklyn Dodgers, died of a heart attack this morning at age 71.

Morehead was the winning pitcher in Philadelphia's 2-1 home victory over Brooklyn on September 29, 1957.

RIP Seth and Campy. I don't really remember Campy as a player, but I do remember Seth. He pitched for the Phillies in the late 50's and also for the Cubs. BYW, Sandy pitched in that final game for the Brooklyn franchise.

The last starting lineup for the Brooklyn Dodgers:
Jim Gilliam 2B
Gino Cimoli CF
Carl Furillo RF
Gil Hodges 1B
Bob Kennedy LF
Randy Jackson 3B
Don Zimmer SS
Joe Pignatano C
Roger Craig P

Roy Campanella pinch hit for Craig in the 8th and flied out. Sandy Koufax pitched the 9th.

Both Sandy and Joe Pignatano were born in Brooklyn. Fitting that a Brooklyn born battery played in the last Brooklyn Dodger game. At least as of a few years ago Joe Pignatano still lives in Brooklyn.
