A late arrival, Casey Blake has now played 365 games at third base in Dodger Blue. Ahead of him on the list is Ron Cey (1468), Adrian Beltré (958), Jim Gilliam (761), Jeff Hamilton (389), Tim Wallach (384) and Pedro Guerrero (370).
Andre Ethier's games in the outfield total 754, good for sixth on the charts. Willie Davis (1906), Dusty Baker (1092), Raul Mondesi (9112), Willie Crawford (8223), Ken Landreaux (769) above him.
The leaders are very familiar. Pitcher Don Sutton and catcher Mike Scioscia sit atop both the Los Angeles and all-time pitcher-catcher lists. As does Davey Lopes (2b) and Ron Cey (3b).
Steve Garvey and Gil Hodges share the first base slots as do Russell and Pee Wee Reese at shortstop. And outfielders Willie Davis and Zach Wheat are the leaders on their respective boards.
Although both Reese and Hodges spent most of their time playing in Brooklyn, the City of Churches, they both came west with the club in 1958. Reese played 39 games in 1958, many at third base, then became a coach.
Hodges played in Los Angeles from 1958-1961, moved to the Mets and then became their manager, leading them to a pair of championships in 1969 and 1973. Somehow he has been overlooked by Hall of Fame voters, but only by those who don't do their proper homework.
Jim Gilliam thrived in both east and west coast environments, finishing third on the Los Angeles games-played list at third base and is second on the all-time second base chart with 1,046 games. Silky-smooth fielding Alex Cora has his name on both the Los Angeles second base and shortstop charts.
Don Drysdale, Sandy Koufax, Clem Labine and Johnny Podres pitched in both cities, with Drysdale holding the second slot on the all-time list and third on the Los Angeles rankings.
Few in Dodger Nation have heard much about William Aloysius "Bill" Bergen who is seventh on the all-time catching list. He played in the National League from 1901-11, the last eight of the years with the Dodgers.
Over 3,328 plate appearances he recorded only 518 hits and knocked in 193 runs to go with his lifetime .170 average, a .194 on-base percentage and a slugging average of .201. His .139 average in 1909 is is lower than any other Major League player who ever qualified for the batting title.
He obviously was an excellent catcher with a rocket-like throwing arm. His 202 assists in 1909 is ninth best by a catcher and on July 24 that year he threw out seven runners attempting to steal. He finished his career with a only two home runs but a remarkable 1,440 assists. There are no comprehensive caught stealing records for the early days in Brooklyn.
