EVERYTHING I AM

 

At 97 years old, Mike Sandlock is oldest surviving Brooklyn Dodger and third-oldest former MLB player. He remembers his glory days with the New York Times including a small morsel on the color barrier.

Sandlock was not there to witness it, but he was around in spring training, when a short-lived petition circulated in opposition to Robinson’s presence on the team. Sandlock, like many other Dodgers, refused to sign it.

Meanwhile, in Montreal, he found himself teammates with Roy Campanella, who, like Robinson, had come out of the Negro leagues and would join the Dodgers the next season and establish himself as one of the great catchers in baseball history.

Sandlock had little of Campanella’s ability. And yet, according to a 1950 article in Ebony magazine, it was Campanella who attributed much of his defensive success to “a lesson he learned in 1947 from a white teammate, catcher Mike Sandlock.”
