Duke Snider dies at 84


GLENDALE, Ariz. -- Edwin Donald Snider, who will forever be known to Brooklyn and Los Angeles Dodgers fans as "Duke," passed away on Sunday morning following an undisclosed illness, both the Dodgers and the Baseball Hall of Fame have announced. He was 84.


Snider, who was elected to the Hall of Fame in 1980, was the Dodgers' primary center fielder from 1947-64 and generally is considered one of the greatest among a long line of superb players who have worn the Dodgers uniform during the franchise's long, storied history. An eight-time All-Star, he still ranks as the franchise's all-time leader in home runs (389) and runs batted in (1,271). He led all major leaguers in the decade of the 1950s with 326 homers and 1,031 RBIs, and he hit four home runs in each of the 1952 and 1955 World Series.
