Don Hoak


From the "This Great Game" card back: First as a caddy to Billy Cox, and then as a backup to Jackie Robinson, the fiery Don Hoak has been an option for the Dodgers at the hot corner. The Quaker State product started Game Seven of the 1955 World Series at third base and produced a hit to help Johnny Podres' cause as “Dem Bums” finally vanquished the rival Yankees.
