All save one of the all-time chart-leaders played in Los Angeles. Only Hall of Famer Zach Wheat spent his entire Dodger career wearing a Brooklyn uniform.
The other names are very familiar. As Sutton and 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 Bill Russell and Pee Wee Reese at shortstop. And outfielders Willie Davis and Wheat are the leaders on their respective boards.
Although both Reese and Hodges spent most of their time playing in the City of Churches, they both came west with the club in 1958. Reese played 39 games in 1958, many at third base, then morphed into a coach. Hodges lasted until 1961, moved to the Mets and then became their manager, leading them to a pair of championships in 1969 and 1973. Somehow in the meantime he has been overlooked by Hall of Fame voters, but only those who don't do their proper homework.
Jim Gilliam thrived in both environments, finishing third on the Los Angeles games-played list at third and second on the all-time second base chart with 1046 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.
Rafael Furcal is the only other current player on the chart, ranking number nine at shortstop.
You may not know 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, two home runs and knocked in 193 runs to go with his lifetime .170 average, a .194 on-base percentage and a slugging average of .201. His batting average of .139 in 1909 is is lower than any other player who ever qualified for the batting title.
He apparently 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 and finished his career with 1.440 assists.

Two years later the four-sport star at UCLA joined the Dodgers and became the first black to play in the major leagues in the 20th century. Robinson went on to enjoy a remarkable 10-year career with the Dodgers, winning the Rookie of the Year award, an honor that now bears his name, and National League MVP honors in 1949. He was inducted into the Hall of Fame in 1962, six years after his retirement as an active player.
