Kent, Martin, Furcal, Loney on Games Chart

While pitcher Don Sutton and catcher Mike Scioscia played together only in 1980 and 1988, the pair have the distinction of topping the Dodgers' games played list. Russell Martin moved up the catching chart during the 2008 season and is in eighth place with 411 games.

The twenty-five year old Martin just completed his second full season in The Show, but despite the relatively short time he has been up, he has caught enough games (411) to move into the eighth spot on the Los Angeles career list. He also notched 11 at third base.

Jeff Kent played his 497th game with the Dodgers and moved into fifth place on the list. James Loney moved onto the charts for the first time and has 290 games at first base and is 10th. Rafael Furcal is the only other current player on the chart, ranking number eight at shortstop with 330 games played.

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 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 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. Chan Ho Park hit the 275 mark in 2008, not high enough to break into the top 10.

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. He finished his career with 1,440 assists.
